Students get a more in depth look at World War I (WW1) battles using this graphic organizer. They pick 10 of 16 battles to research and in the chart they fill in the battle name, when and where it happened, which side won, and the general historical significance to the battle. They also answer 10 questions of varying levels of difficulty about specific battles, the variety of fronts, technology and weapons developments, and more. I typically have students do this in pairs. Depending on what you cover in class, the students might need access to reference books or the internet to do additional research. This is appropriate for both US and World History. The answers are included and this would be great for a sub!
Sample questions include:
--List and describe 2 new advancements/technologies that were first used in WWI battles.
--Why do you think the Eastern European, Middle East, and African fronts get so much less attention in history classes and in popular culture?
--In which battle was Hitler injured by chlorine gas?
--Which battle was the first to see American soldiers participate (and not by volunteering in a foreign unit)?
--Discuss the evolution, and effectiveness or lack thereof, of air power during World War I.
