World War I Video Map

In my department meeting today we talked about some of the things that we’ve been doing in our classrooms. One of my colleagues shared this video that he recently found on YouTube. The video provides a brief overview of the causes of and events of World War I. The story is put into a geographic context by pointing out on a map, the location of events. The video is embedded below.

The same person (dizzo95) that upload this video to YouTube has also uploaded a number of similar videos that may be of interest to history teachers.
Applications for Education
If you’re in need of a quick introductory or review video about World War I, this one may suit your needs. As your students are watching the video you may want to have them select events which they then have to research and share more information about with their classmates.
