Trench Warfare Simulation

Trench Warfare Simulation
     "Trench Warfare", "No Man's Land" these may seem like boring vocabulary words to most students, but they'll mean something more to your students as they face the daunting task of trying to brake the stalemate on the Western Front.  Students will problem solve and strategize as to how to break through each others lines.  In the end, they'll realize that the Western Front punished the side on the offensive.  Sending waves of men into blistering machine gun fire was pure insanity.
