Product Description
A model building rubric, teacher guide, and activity worksheets. Over 5 different project ideas based on primary source material and creative writing.

Have you ever been tempted to throw a tarp on the floor of your classroom, pile a bunch of dirt on it, and then build models of trench warfare, reconstructing them from primary source material. Encourage students to use historical research skills and primary sources to recreate battlefields like the Battle of the Somme, Verdun, or Eastern Front.

Check out the photographs of actual class projects. Includes lots of pages of primary source WW1 materials which can be used to help reconstruct the project.

Includes attractive worksheets to be used for gallery walks, creative writing assignments, and text-dependent scavenger hunts after the original model building activity is done.

Rubrics included.

Projects can be completed at home (0 days of class time) or used as class activities for over 1 week.

Check out the preview file for more details of what you will receive!

Rubrics could be used with different primary sources for other battlefield model projects as well.
