Vox: 40 maps that explain World War I

by Bill Hayes

Vox has 40 maps that explain World War I, which help explain how the conflict began, why the Allies won, and how it forever changed the world.

Also, CRF has created this free online lesson: A Fire Waiting to Be Lit: The Origins of World War I. In addition to the main article “A Fire Waiting to Be Lit: The Origins of World War I,” this lesson has four Common Core activities. Students will need to read and discuss the main article before doing the activities. Included are instructions for teachers and students, followed by student handouts. Students should have the main article available for reference for each of the activities.
