WW1 - Short term causes and trigger event World war 1. Here is a powerpoint that will help students learn about the trigger event of WW1 and it has three worksheets that can be used to facilitate learning including a homework task.
This PowerPoint could be used as a full lesson and includes attached activities, challenging and thoughtful questions, embedded URL links where appropriate and a variety of tasks/information for students to use to learn about the issues relating to the topic. This resource includes a starter activity a variety of tasks and then a plenary activity. It will hopefully engage all students regardless of ability.
The only extra resource needed is the Videos of 'the assassination" Found on youtube ***HERE***
which will tell the story of Franz Ferdinand's assassination and can be used with the Powerpoint
