Welcome to our textbook on the Berlin Wall. This textbook was created by Year 8 History as an extension project. After two introductory lessons from our teacher, Mrs Sorbello, we then worked independently in groups to research, write and publish our chapters.
Each chapter, or learning focus area, covers one aspect of the Berlin Wall. In the first chapter, we introduce you to the significance of the Berlin Wall. Further chapters cover other aspects of the Wall, from its building in 1961 to its fall in 1989, and we then conclude with a look at the legacy of the wall today.
There are questions in each chapter to help you focus your learning about this fascinating and significant topic in world history.
