This extremely interactive product allows students to take on the role of a WWI general supervising a trench warfare battle. They will make tactical decisions and play against one opponent while learning about concepts such as chemical warfare, tanks, disease, and artillery. This massive bundle of resources includes the game board, a set of game cards, a rules sheet, and a reflection assignment for once students are done playing. The only materials you need to provide are dice and playing pieces (I usually have students color a piece of paper and then rip small pieces of the paper up into small paper balls to make their own pieces), and the only major piece of prep work that needs done is to cut out the cards beforehand.
This activity can be used for 1v1 or 2v2 depending on your class needs, and can either be done to introduce the concept of trench warfare, or as a fun activity to reinforce learning after you have talked about it.
