The People of the War:
Take some time to look at the picture at the following website to get an idea, of what your character's life and world might have been like at the beginning of the war. Got to the following link and go to "gallery." or "going to war"
Trench Warfare and Stalemate:

I would like you two look at two sections of the BBC website: trenches and human experience, but feel free to investigate other sections as well.
1.) Trenches: Virtual Tours
2.) The Human Experience of War (this is part of what we looked at in class last week with the videos.)
3.) Campaigns and Battles of World War I
I would like you to look at two sections of the PBS website:
What was battle like during WWI?
Battle of the Somme:
In this website from the Imperial War Museum I would like you to explore one battle in depth, the Battle of the Somme. When you get to the Imperial War Museum (IWM) website you will have to search for the Battle of the Somme.
This website is also awesome for looking up any information you are interested in about WWI.
In this section I would like you to investigate: What new weapons were used during the First World War?
Would you have succeeded as a WWI soldier? (Play the game only when you have finished everything else.)
