Dear Home: Letters from WWI


Preserved letters are wonderful primary source documents that students can use to glimpse life in a bygone era. The History Channel began the Legacy Project to share the letters written by men and women in World War I. Students can read first-hand accounts of battles and wartime conditions. Perhaps more important is the insight into the lives of normal people caught up in a catastrophic event. A creative teacher can draw many activities out of this site, such as having the students write their own letters home as though they were in the War.
