This resource will engage students in reflecting on the significance of the First World War by colour-coding a series of statements. They will categorise the information according to '5 Rs': how the war is remembered, why it resonates with us, how the events were remarkable, what they reveal about the time and what the results were.

The Triple Entente created a ‘winners' club’. Germany was punished harshly and made to take the blame for the First World War, pay for the damage and keep their own country without a significant military. This created the climate for the Second World War.
