I created these resources to use in my own fifth grade classroom to supplement my WWI unit. There are two sets of fill in the blank notes (1 page each) for students to glue into their interactive notebooks or clip into their binders. Each set of notes comes with an answer key on the next page.
These are perfect for if you don't want your students to have to copy notes word for word or if you need an accommodation for ESOL/SPED students.
The first set of notes is about the MAIN causes of WWI in Europe (Militarism, Alliances, Imperialism, and Nationalism). The second set is about life on the home front in the U.S. during the war.
The specific standard from the Georgia Standards of Excellence addressed in these files are:
SS5H2 Describe U.S. involvement in World War I and post-World War I America.
a. Explain how German attacks on U.S. shipping during the war in Europe (1914-1917) ultimately led the U.S. to join the fight against Germany; include the sinking of the Lusitania and concerns over safety of U.S. ships, U.S. contributions to the war, and the impact of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919.
