Free World War 1 Newspaper Book

http://www.historic-newspapers.co.uk/info/teaching-history-resources/

A special book has been created utilising newspapers from the archive to tell the story of the First World War.

The World War One newspaper book can be used to discuss the changing nature of conflict, the cooperation between countries, the shift of alliances and the lasting impact of the war on national, ethnic, cultural and religious issues.

It’s a wonderful way to teach children about World War One, as each newspaper is filled with stories from eyewitnesses who were present at the time, making it a pleasurable way to aid learning and engage a pupil’s interest and imagination. They offer teachers the chance to encourage chronological understanding, evoke a sense of period and provides a framework to discuss today’s events in a historical context.
