Most importantly, your students will get excited about The Great War and want to learn more! 

     In June of 1914, one single incident set off a chain reaction engulfing Europe and the world into a devastating war.  The assassination of the Archduke sets off a diplomatic firestorm.  All eyes turn on Serbia, who it’s rumored sponsored the assassination of the Archduke.   The “magic” behind this lesson plan is that students become emotionally involved with their countries and competitive about achieving their objectives.  This World War One Simulation Activity is a collection of Microsoft Word and Excel documents.  The documents are organized in binders or in a computer lab/1:1 set-up electronically for students and used in combination with the War Map on your projector to bring World War One to life in your classroom! (This is a digital download activity)
     WW1 simulations and games for kids help get kids interested and excited about learning.
