It has been 100 years since the start of the World War I, the war that would end all wars. High 5 Achievers presents a 45 slide WWI PPT presentation, aligned to the Common Core State Standards, which provides a comprehensive overview of WWI. It is a good introduction to the causes of the conflict and the consequences of WWI on Europe and the world. Both English and social studies teachers can use this as a stand-alone lesson or in conjunction with All Quiet on the Western Front and/or WWI poetry. This PowerPoint presents a timeline of some of the major events of the war, introduces students to the principle players of the European conflict and to some of the military hardware introduced during World War I. The PPT presentation also contains numerous slide notes for the teacher to assist in the teaching of this topic.
