The Great War, also known as World War I, was fought from 1914-1918 between multiple countries on two opposing sides. The Central Powers included Germany, Austria-Hungary, and the Ottoman Empire, while the other side consisted of France, Great Britain, Russia, Italy, Japan, and the United States. President Barack Obama recently recognized two soldiers for their service in the war. Have your class watch the video (above) and answer the following questions in a class discussion.
