So how could you develop these ideas? Over the next 3 weeks, we will produce an investigation which will look at ideas such as these in much greater detail
How will we do this? Your investigation will have at least 4 chapters: 1.Conditions in the trenches 2.Daily life 3.Disease in the trenches 4.Technology & WW1 There can be MORE if you can think of suitable chapter headings
For each heading you will be expected to research THOROUGHLY 1.Think about the questions you want to answer: e.g. Life in the trenches: What were sleeping conditions like? What was food like? How many men would live together? What was the daily routine? What were men scared of? Did they miss anything from back home?
How will we find the answers to these questions? Books Videos On-line: –Using internet sites –Finding pictures –Using comments, letters etc from soldiers –ANY OTHER RESOURCE which you think useful. E.g. War poetry
How will you present your findings? The most popular way will probably be in the form of a report. However, if you want to try something else this may be possible: E.g. Powerpoint. Be prepared to present your findings to the class.

How did they keep in touch with their family? What were living conditions like? How much sleep did the soldiers get? What was the general health of the soldiers like? What kind of problems did the soldiers face? These are some ideas but THERE ARE MANY, MANY MORE
