A-level Russia resources

Develop your students' understanding of Russian history with our KS5 teaching resources. 

Our selection of games, role-play, card sorts and revision activities will help your AS and A-level students deepen their knowledge of Russia and the Soviet Union in the 19th and 20th centuries. Our resources cover the key topics, whichever specification you are teaching, including Tsarist Russia, the Russian Revolution, and Lenin and Stalin's leadership.

Since Russian forces entered Ukraine on 24 February 2022, your students will no doubt have been keen to find out more about the history of relations between the two countries. Our page on Discussing the war in Ukraine with students offers background information from reliable sources to enable you and your students to answer their questions, plus thought-provoking lesson starters and discussion resources on the nature of war more generally.
