Students read about the Christmas Truce of World War 1 (WW1, WWI) and answer 8 questions of varying levels of difficulty (answers included where appropriate). This would be great for a sub! This is appropriate for both US and World History.
Sample questions include:
-In what ways were the conditions in the trenches abominable?
-Why do you think this never happened again?
-What was decided by the British just before midnight and why do you think it was?
-Summarize the last paragraph. You should especially discuss why you think "nasty things" were being said about the British Army.
