Product Description

"The soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war." Douglas MacArthur (American General ~ 1880 - 1964)

The year 2018 marks the Centennial of the end of The Great War.

The popular movie Joyeux Noël portrays the Christmas of 1914 when an unofficial truce occurred between the two sides fighting in trenches only yards away from each other.

This true event is recounted in an excellent 45-minute History Channel documentary 'The Great War ~ Christmas Truce 1914', viewable online.

A viewing link is provided with the question sheet.

You get:

* A 5-page introductory overhead in English with background information

* A question sheet with 20 follow-along questions in English

* An answer key.

Having students select from multiple choice answers allows

more time for their eyes to stay on the film and not spend

it looking down writing out answers and, thus,

not miss important moments in the film.

Please Note: The overhead here is the same as in my 'Feature * Film ~ Joyeux Noël'.

All items are ready-to-use for a nice overview of this magical moment in time which would resound through history. (7 pages)

* PLEASE NOTE *

This item is also available in my

* World War I Centennial ~ Bonus Bundle

or

* World War I ~ The Great War Centennial Bundle *

should you prefer to buy a bundle.

* SPECIAL NOTE 1 *

Here is an 8-minute summary of this event with a nice map of how Europe was divided up at the time ~
