Why Lesson Planet?
Do your historians fully grasp the consequences of being at war? Help them connect past with present through this group research activity, which has high schoolers analysing repercussions suffered by citizens of countries in conflict. Students research from a list of wars (needs updating), and consider possible consequences of current conflicts in which the U.S. is involved. Although the U.S. is at war in the Middle East, consider having groups analyze a less obvious country.
