We've been learning about the MAIN causes of World War I. When we teach this, we use the acronym MAIN: Militarism, Alliances Imperialism, and Nationalism.
We found a great game that showed our students how the different Allies built up their forces.
Students each cut out the game board and pieces so they could take it home and play in the afternoon. We paired everyone up and gave them about 40 minutes to delve into it. It was a great way to spend our short day!
I'm looking for a few picture books to help teach World War 1 and World War II. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have. Thanks!
