WEAPONS IN WORLD WAR I
READ ABOUT IT & ANALYZE IT!
Welcome to the Weapons of World War I Virtual Center. This virtual center is different from the other virtual centers you have done. In this center, we will not do a whole group reading. Instead, you will work quietly with a partner to learn about the different weapons used in World War I. To do this, click on each of the weapons icons below. Complete the Weapons of World War I Scavenger Hunt in your Lesson Chronicles with your partner. Make sure you READ the information. It will be in your Mission Check!
