Spring 1 IPC PROJECT : world war I

What's the big idea?

What defines a successful leader? How are individuals able to become so powerful? We will be looking at the causes of World War 2, and the effects that this event had on different countries around the world.

Can You Help?

Do you have knowledge or resources about our project?

Could you give some time to come into class to help with reading? Please come and talk to your child’s teacher if you can help!
