This is a 114 slide World War 1 power point (the US History version) which is slightly abbreviated to accommodate for variations between textbooks/districts. Topics include but are not limited to: the causes of World War 1, the Battle of the Somme, the Lusitania, the Schlieffen Plan, Zimmerman Note, Treaty of Versailles, Wilson's 14 Points, League of Nations, Christmas Truce, the home front, and trench warfare.
I typically spend a whole day going over the causes and then the students have 2 hands on activities on the causes of the war on day two. I spend a whole day on trench warfare, a whole day on women at war and soldiers coming home from war, and the length the rest of the material takes typically depends on the students and how many activities and projects we do. Recap questions are scattered throughout the power point, and I frequently have students create their own recap questions.
***This power point INCLUDES the entire home front power point I have in my store...if you purchase this item you do NOT need to purchase the home front power point***
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want the information I present to the students but is represented in pictures in the power point rather than words.
***there is pertinent information in the presenter's notes, please be sure to look at them***
