Just before WWI erupted, the Kaiser of Germany, Wilhelm II, and the Czar of Russia, Nicholas II, exchanged a number of desperate, frantic and threatening telegraph messages. The cousins had the power to maintain peace or become the gods of war...
I have the authentic messages between these two leaders. This is primary source history study at its finest. You can have one student read or act out the role of Willy and the other be Nicky. I have included and answer key and great review questions.
This is a great stand alone assignment or it can be used in conjunction with my deatiled history powerpoints. This assignment dovetails nicely with 6.1 The Great War Begins which is also available from my store.
