Causes of War

A lesson that explores the learning questions:
What causes war?
Is war ever justified?
Using a game students explore in teams of 6 the possible causes of war, and evaluate if they are worthwhile. Differentiated learning outcomes and links to youtube videos included, this lesson has been tweaked over a course of 5 years into something that works for me in the classroom. It includes guided discussion and debate topics, as well as some religious opinions in the form of Augustine’s just war theory.
Any necessary instructions included in the powerpoint notes.
