  1. 1. The Great War
  2. 2. You are about to see some pictures of soldiers during WWI. As you see them, analyze them thinking about the following questions: What is going on? What are these people doing? How are they feeling? What could be considered an aspect of normal daily life?
  3. 3. This photograph shows daily life on the frontline. A British soldier is washing in the stagnant water that has collected in a shell crater. Millions of soldiers lived in similar conditions of poor hygiene. http://www.bl.uk/collection-items/british-soldier-makes- toilet#sthash.Jj1Mjjhr.dpuf
  4. 4. This photograph shows daily life in a trench: a soldier is having his hair cut. At the beginning of the war, it was thought the conflict would last just a few weeks or months. But quickly it became a war of attrition, and spanned more than four years. Trenches, like this one on the Albanian Front, became home for the soldiers. http://www.bl.uk/collection-items/alpine-barber-trenches- cerna#sthash.8Pqz0mng.dpuf
