World War I trench warfare was a devastating experience for most soldiers. Much of a unit on this topic is spent exploring the daily lives of soldiers in the trenches.
This quick clip could be used in several ways: asking students to document what they see as a reporter, describing how they believe the soldiers feel, writing a letter home as a soldier based on what is in the video, writing a journal entry, etc.
