The content is presented in a simple manner that helps students focus on essential understandings. I use this WWI PowerPoint over the course of 2-3 class periods. Day 1 focuses on the long term and immediate causes of the war. Day 2 covers slides on battles and major events and I use the final slides on America joining, the Treaty of Versailles, and Mandate System for the 3rd day. However, the entire PowerPoint could be covered in a block class if desired.
A Google Slides version of the presentation is now also included in the download!
This PowerPoint will definitely help your World and American History students understand each aspect of World War I and keep them engaged in your lesson. Hope you enjoy!
