Teaching the Great War with Elementary School Students
Think WW I is only a topic for middle and high school students? Think again! Join a National WWI Museum and Memorial educator in this exciting webinar, sponsored by the SD DOE, to learn effective teaching techniques for use with elementary school students as they are introduced to World War I. We’ll present engaging classroom activities, lessons about alliances, trench warfare, and propaganda and ideas for more in-depth student projects that will develop students’ historical research skills. In addition, we’ll discuss recommended K-5 reading to enrich your lessons. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding WWI and its continued impact and relationship to global situations, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.
These lessons will address South Dakota learning standards: K-12.H.1: Students will analyze how major events are chronologically connected and evaluate their impact on one another.; K-12.H.4: Students will identify and evaluate the causes and effects of past, current and potential events, issues and problems.; K-12.H.5:Students will develop historical research skills. CEUs will be offered for participating in this webinar.
