The “magic” behind our World War 1 lesson plan is that students become emotionally involved with their countries and competitive about achieving their objectives.

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!
