Product Description

A great way to increase student interest and also develop important researching skills. Students are divided up into groups and each group is given a statement about the war. Their task is to investigate the statement to determine whether it is fact or fiction!

Sample statement:

- Prior to gas masks, soldiers would urinate on a rag and put it on their face to protect themselves during a gas attack.

Students will research the statement and must find both a primary and secondary source to that proves the statement to be either fact or fiction (research template provided). They then make a brief informal presentation to their classmates (tracking sheet provided).

Here's what's included:

- A nicely designed, engaging and editable product.

- Very clear student instructions and teacher tips!

- Intro and seating plan.

- Clear rubric.

- Researching tips and links to a video explaining primary and secondary sources.

- 8 investigative statements: Cousins at war, Christmas Truce, Carrier Pigeons, Youngest British Soldier, Rum and Courage etc.

- Printable student research template and tracking sheet.

- Debrief class questions.

- At the end a link to a comical video about the Christmas Truce of 1914!
