In The Classroom

WWI Class Simulation

VGHS World History Teacher, Steve Koenigseder, taught students about life in the WWI trenches by simulating a battle in his classroom. Students used wadded up pieces of paper for the bombs/ammunition to “attack”. Lights were turned off  and sounds of thunder were played. At “cease fire” the students picked up a paper ball and read the description. The descriptions could be as simple as, "getting scratched by barbed wire" or "fatal shot”. This activity led to a journaling exercise in which students wrote their descriptions into letters to send to their loved ones describing the “war”.
