Product Description
Did the United States have good reasons for entering WWI?

In the spring of 1917, the U.S. Congress and president Woodrow Wilson plunged the country into war. Yet, in the century that has passed, few debate whether America should have gotten involved in the first place. In this lesson, students examine the alleged reasons for war and determine whether our entry into the conflict was justified.

Students will:
1) Respond to a Bell Ringer Poll that has them consider the act of entering a conflict,
2) Watch a video clip about unrestricted submarine warfare during the WWI era.
3) Listen to an audio recording about the sinking of the Lusitania.
4) Watch a video clip about the Zimmerman Telegram and the impact it had on the American-Mexican relations.
5) Read an article about the deciphering of the Zimmerman Telegram.
6) Finish with an exit ticket that has students thinking like a US Senator and determining whether America should partake in WWI.
