Zachary Taylor's insight:

This short yet informative YouTube about the Great War/World War I, describes the reasoning behind the war, as well as how it ended.

While not the most detailed video, since it was only seven minutes long, it is a good introduction video for the  new topic of the Great War. I suggest watching the video before coming to class to get a head start on the topic.

Zachary Taylor's insight:

Studying the map:

-Which country do you believe it originated from? State your reasoning for your decision by making links to both the art style of the map and our study in class.
