What was the trenches really like? Historical Enquiry

A clear historical enquiry focused PPT with activities included to be used with a class investigating **what was life was like in the trenches. **

Students will need to have a copy of the table and move around the classroom read and completing the table based on the information gained from the individual sources.

It’s a great activity for getting students moving around and reading fictional accounts of the war.

I have created the sources with the intention of attempting to include a wide range of issues from the war. For example; colonialism; nationalism; the war stench; officers’ attitude; plastic surgery due to injuries sustained; genuine conditions of the trenches; the constant artillery shelling and how British nationalism propelled by the war effort helped to maintain support.

Hope you can enjoy this source.
