This presentation provides students a visually stimulating lesson detailing the course & conduct of World War I (including the conditions that soldiers faced while fighting trench warfare & how the war was finally brought to a close). Designed as a student-centered activity to be uploaded into google classroom, the presentation includes 9 embedded focus questions for students to answer using their core text (and additional information presented in the slides). The slides are filled with colorful pictures, maps, charts, and other relevant information that will serve as a platform in which to build additional related activities. This lesson is also great to use when you are out of the classroom, serving as an awesome resource for sub days! If you'd like a version you can edit, shoot me an email and I'll be happy to help. Enjoy!
