This worksheet explores the major world powers before World War I and gives students a chance to compare their strengths and weaknesses (economic, military, etc.). There is a chart to complete (either full class as a lecture or working individually/small group using research devices to complete). There are discussion questions, a ranking system, and an answer key.
This product would be used at the start of a World War I unit. It can be used for any grade level studying the war; however, I created it for use with 5th graders.
