Run through the break out of the World War with a
teacher guided student role play. Students act as
countries and are talked through each countries
action and the other countries reaction

After the demonstration is over, students should
have a good understanding of the out break of
WW1. The students then create a page in their
exercise books to initiate the start of the WW1 unit
that documents the key points of the war. Students
will add to this as the unit goes on. It allows student
access to concise information of WW1 which they
can return to whenever they feel the need. The page
will contain key dates of the war, who fought on what
side and definitions. It allows students to summarise
information into their own words and provides a
base point for the remainder of the unit.

This exercise will run as a group discussion with
guided questioning from the teacher.
