An educational and interactive children's guide to the Great War. In time for the 2014 centennial of the start of the Great War, this activity book provides an intriguing and comprehensive look at World War I, which involved all of the world's superpowers during a time of great technological and societal change. Emphasising connections among events as well as the war's influence on later historical developments, it leads young readers to fully understand the most important aspects of the war, including how the war came about, how changing military technology caused the western front to bog down into a long stalemate, how the war fostered an era of rapid technological advances, and how the entry of the United States helped end the war. The book explores topics of particular interest to kids, such as turn-of-the-20th-century weaponry, air and naval warfare, and the important roles animals played in the war. Relevant cross-curricular activities expand on concepts introduced and illuminate the era of the early 1900s, including making a periscope, sending a mock message in Morse code, estimating the altitude of an aircraft, learning a popular World War I song, and more.
