The Perils of Trench Warfare

May 7, 2014


When studying World War I, it is inevitable a discussion of trench warfare will take place.   But instead of just discussing this battle technique, what would happen if students actually experienced trench warfare.  That is exactly what happened in Ms. Clark's World History classes.  Students turned the classroom upside down, created trenches using desks and chairs, and proceeded to bombard each other with foam balls.  The object was to get 2 members of your team across "no man's land" and infiltrate the other team's trench.  Needless to say battles were won and soldiers were lost - all with a great deal of drama.  Who knew WWI could be so much fun?!
