This thorough packet on World War 1 is a perfect unit guide to help students understand all of the key concepts, people, battles, and events they need to know!

The 9-page independent work packet includes engaging pages on all every aspect of World War 1 from a US History perspective. There's also standards-based Essential Questions to guide your whole unit!

It starts off with a short introductory reading on World War 1, followed by the standards-based essential questions, then pages dedicated to each of the following:

  • Vocabulary
  • Geography
  • People to Know
  • A Timeline of the WWI era
  • Key Concepts
  • Visual Literacy

Content covered include the causes of WWI, new weapons, Woodrow Wilson, the 14 Points, the Lusitania, the Zimmerman Telegram, key battles like the Marne, the Treaty of Versailles, and much more!

There are engaging analysis questions throughout the packet so that students are not just copying information, but thinking about the key concepts. Pages feature primary source excerpts and quotes, images for students to analyze, mapping to help improve geography skills, and more. It can be split up and used as worksheets or as a complete packet!

Also included is an editable Google Docs version of the entire packet. This version features links to great online sources and is perfect for those of you who have gone paperless or use Google Classroom. A link to online readings to use with the printed version is included as well!

All the major aspects of World War 1 from a US History perspective are covered in this packet. While it could also work for World History, you will find that it is best for a US History look at the war. It's the perfect resource to use throughout your unit to keep your students focused on what they need to know!

A complete answer key is also included for your convenience.

This resource can also be downloaded as part of my complete World War 1 Unit Plan Bundle.
