This is a two-day project intended to emphasize the new weapons and technology that were introduced during World War One. The project requires students to create a poster of a new type of weapon introduced during the war and give details related to how that weapon was used and the exact models used. Specific requirements of the project include:
-Choosing one type of weapon to present (small arms [machine guns, grenades, flamethrowers, etc...], tanks, poison gasses, airships/planes, or artillery/cannons
-Choosing either one country to research and portray the chosen type of weapon OR choosing two countries and comparing their weapons from the chosen category
-Providing images and descriptions of each weapon
-Providing an overview of how the weapon was used
This is a good project to use when demonstrating the impact of industrialization on the war and is a good compliment to a full unit on World War One.
