What teachers are saying about this World War I Unit:

❤️ “This WW1 unit is worth every penny! Absolutely wonderful. It is comprehensive, easy to understand, and the activities are engaging. As an ELA and World History teacher, I appreciate the fact that the unit combines literacy and history. This resource is a huge timesaver for me as a first-year teacher. Thank you so much!”

❤️ “These resources on WW1 are amazing. I like the literacy component that you added to it. The resources are varied and engaging. I believe my students will love this material as much as I do. Great job. I too look forward to your World and American History when it is completed. Again, outstanding resources!!”

❤️ ”I absolutely love the resources from Brainy Apples. It was resources that I was able to adapt from in-classroom to distance learning. The information, notes, and videos are very helpful to learners across the learning styles. One of the positive benefits was that these resources helped me adapt from teaching college to teaching middle school history. Thank you for having such wonderful resources.”

❤️ “Amazing resource! I used a majority of the resources within this product for two years now with success. I loved how organized and detailed the information was and has been a great supplemental resource for the high school level. The resources included are also a lifesaver for when a substitute teacher is needed as well.”

❤️ “This is one of my favorite resources. The handouts and PPT are engaging and eye-catching. I have used this unit for the past 3 years and absolutely love it!”

Specific reading skills in this unit are:

series of events, cause-effect relationships, central idea, key details, summarization, cite text evidence, integrate multiple sources of information, & meaning of words/phrases using context clues.
