History Lab: Auxiliary Personnel of the First World War (Online Course)
This digital download includes instructions for access to two versions of the associated online course.
History labs are a great way to make Social Studies content come to life. Investigative learning experiences in history labs help students learn historical content while developing critical reading and analytical skills - just like historians!
In Auxiliary Personnel of the First World War, students learn about the conditions of fighting during the First World War by examining the contributions made by auxiliary personnel, including:
- Stretcher bearers.

In studying these hidden figures of the war, students work to characterize war-time contributions. The final product? Creating a dedication for hypothetical use at the National World War I Museum.
