This bundle includes the unit powerpoint, guided notes, and a reading concerning the role animals played in WWI with an essay prompt at the end (I realize this is not exactly a curriculum relevant topic, but it's super interesting and the kids are shocked at the how big of a role animals have played in warfare in general throughout history).
The PowerPoint is loaded with cool animations, pictures, quotes, video links, and interesting facts/vital content for students. It's extremely visual in portraying what trenches looked like, what soldiers suffered from, strategy and tactics of trench warfare, weapons, chemical warfare, etc. It also talks about key trench battles during WWI. It is neatly organized and flows well. Look for the asterisks next to certain terms, people, etc... those are there for students to underline/highlight for emphasis.
The notes are concise and allow the students to focus on the lesson. They also have built in bellworks and focus questions. Please note they contain the content, but not quotes, supplemental information, etc. Basically, everything you need without dragging the kids down in detail.
