HistorySimulation.com produces engaging history lesson plans for students. For any teacher planning a unit on World War 1, this lesson plan is a great way to bring history to life for them. The original program was developed and tested over years of use and is used by nearly 200 high school teachers throughout North America. The Homeschool WWI Simulation Lesson Plans were adapted by Mr. Harms, from our  World War One Simulation for High School and Middle School

The adapted version of the WW1 Simulation offers homeschool teachers the opportunity to bring World War One to life by placing history in the hands of the students. With modified instructions and simplified terminology, the adapted version gives homeschool students the opportunity to engage this great conflict in new and challenging ways.  The Homeschool WWI Lesson Plan Simulation is adapted to very small class sizes and teachers may even have to take a role-which allows students to begin to understand the level of influence this conflict had on a global scale.

This WW1 simulation will help get students interested and excited about learning. Instead of simply recreating what happened in the Great War, students can alter the course of history through the decisions they make. This program can be customized to any class size and become a unit that students will want to do again.

About HistorySimulation.com

     I started HistorySimulation.com in October of 2011 and teachers around the country have found the programs an invaluable addition to their curriculum. The programs are easy to use and can be customized by teachers. They are also designed to be used year after year. Although most simulations are designed for high school students, we now offer programs for elementary school students.
     During the simulation, students are constantly using their critical thinking skills to develop strategies and carry on tough negotiations with the other leaders.  Because students become so interested, they seem to learn a lot more. Games for kids can create an interest level that is hard to duplicate in the ordinary Social Studies setting.  Over the years, I kept adding different aspects to the simulation and eventually created something that really got the kids excited and passionate about history.  I also found that students were much more engaged after doing the simulation as we went over what really happened and compared it to our simulation.  The discussions and questions flowed like never before.  Teaching students that are interested is so much more fun!
