Trench Warfare

Students Learn about Trench Warfare

As the alarm bell sounded, you could hear the students yelling “Gas! Gas! Gas!” as the students in Mr. McKenzie and Ms. Balmes’ eighth-grade social studies classes learned about life in the trenches during World War I. The students were filled with high anticipation as they entered a mock Trench Warfare Simulation. Some students, armed with their homemade gas masks, were very prepared after reading selections of the book “All Quiet on the Western Front” by Erich Remarque. They learned about the turmoil endured by the soldiers and left class that day with a greater appreciation for those who served our nation during that time.
