At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the Great War ended. That morning, faced with imminent invasion, Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies. At the end of the First World War, 9 million soldiers had fallen and 21 million were wounded. At least 5 million civilians had lost their lives.
To help your students understand the significant impact of the First World War and commemorate those who have fallen, we’ve compiled some of the most useful teacher support material that’s free to use.
