Activity Overview

When studying WWI, it's important for students to understand the significance on a global scale. In this activity, students will create a spider map highlighting significant statistics relating to the war. Students can use the "Infographics" section of the Storyboard Creator to help them create their projects. Visualizing data is a great way to help students remember it, rather than having them memorize numbers without context.

Significant Statistical Topics

  • Military Casualties of WWI
  • Civilian Casualties of WWI
  • Financial cost of the war
  • Widows/Orphans created by the war
  • Refugees of WWI
  • Deadliest battles of WWI
  • Prisoners of War of WWI
  • Deaths caused by disease throughout the War
  • % of total population lost
  • # of military items (guns, bullets, mines, bombs) used by country
  • Casualties by Month/Year during the war
  • # of PTSD or “shell shocked” soldiers
