World War I Trench Life includes a separate research Inquiry sheet for each of
the following topics:
➢ Trench Structure
Each inquiry sheet contains precise questions to answer as a way to
streamline and to target the information to be researched. Answer spaces
are provided on each topic sheet for every question, as well as a place to list
sources used. Each inquiry sheet also has its own answer key and a short
follow up multiple choice quiz with a key to measure knowledge gained. At
the end of this unit is also a Trench Life Choice Board which can be used to
have students create a finished product based on research completed.
Each inquiry topic sheet blends problem solving skills along with research
skills and technology while learning required content in a fun and exciting
way. Students have the opportunity to explore various websites before
choosing sources to answer required questions as their learning is self directed.

Teachers should also be aware that some answers may vary from the key
provided based on websites used but should be similar if not the same. If
teachers choose to use the included quizzes then the students’ answers should
agree with those on the key provided for each inquiry sheet in order for the
quizzes to be a fair assessment.
