In this week long lesson, students will learn about the end of the First World War by interpreting the casualty rates of all the major participants in the war from a statistical standpoint and will learn how this war would alter future conflicts. Furthermore, the students will analyze the money expenditure of each major warring nation during the war and its overall effect on their economy and on the Stock Market as well. Also the students will view two major European maps: 1914 Europe and 1919 Europe. These political maps should provide the students a visual of what occurred before and after the war, the nations created and the archaic empires that fell. The 1919 map will be crucial for student understanding of German aggression in the 1930s, and German and Soviet aggression in 1939 up to and through June 1941.
