Using sources as evidence - Why August 1914 (Public Domain)

Students will use a satirical map from 1914 to start learning about the tensions in Europe that contributed to war in 1914. They will practise their skills of using sources as evidence to test hypothesis and ask questions that require contextualising with knowledge. This can be used as a starter activity, or developed into a full lesson.
