Day 5: Trench Warfare

Setting the Stage:
The Western Front would soon become a stalemate because of the evolution of the machine gun.  Both the Allied and Central Powers dug in building vast trench systems that stretch for miles and miles. 

Activities:
1. Conquest: Trench Warfare
           This video uses the "reality tv" format to engage students about trench warfare.  It goes over
            the types of trenches, weapons, and what everyday life was like living in these filthy things.


 2.  After the video, students will receive extra information about Trench Warfare (Trench Warfare Information) and corresponding questions (Trench  Warfare Questions ).  Students will be turning in their question sheets before they leave class today. 

Objective:
a.  Identify everyday aspects of everyday living in the trenches during WWI.
b.  Understand the unusual weapons and traditions that came with trench warfare.
