      In June of 1914, one single incident set off a chain reaction engulfing Europe and the world into a devastating war.  The assassination of the Archduke sets off a diplomatic firestorm.  All eyes turn on Serbia, who it’s rumored sponsored the assassination of the Archduke.  The World War 1 Simulation is a hands on activity where students are assigned the roles of leaders from the conflict. They’ll quickly become engaged in the activity and develop ties with students representing other countries.

      The “magic” behind our World War 1 lesson plan is that students become emotionally involved with their countries and competitive about achieving their objectives.  This World War One Simulation Activity is a collection of Microsoft Word and Excel documents.  The documents are organized in binders or in a computer lab/1:1 set-up electronically for students and used in combination with the War Map on your projector to bring World War One to life in your classroom! (This is a digital download activity). This program is designed to be a lesson plan that is easy for teachers to set up and which they can customize based on the size of their classroom. We even offer World War 1 lesson plans for students that are home schooled that is designed for just one or two students.
     Mr. Harms produces interactive history lesson plans for high school and middle school students, including units on World War 1 and World War 2. Developed and tested over years of use, this simulation is used by nearly 200 teachers throughout North America. WW1 simulations and games for kids help get kids interested and excited about learning. Instead of simply recreating what happened, students can alter the course of history through the choices they make. The World War 1 lesson plan is one that future classes will look forward to, having heard about it from older students.

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!
