World War I This Library of Congress Student Discovery Set is here to put history into your hands. It brings together historical artifacts and one-of-a-kind documents from the collections of the Library of Congress. Interactive tools let you zoom in for close examination, draw to highlight interesting details, and make notes about what you discover. There’s no single right answer, only new discoveries to be made.
World War I was a war like no other, and U.S. participation in this global conflict had a profound impact on those who fought and on the future of the nation. This set brings together photographs, maps, sheet music, recorded sound, cartoons, and other artifacts that explore the events and legacy of the war.
This set is intended for open-ended primary source analysis by students. A Teacher’s Guide with background information, teaching ideas, and additional resources is available on the Library’s Web site for teachers, loc.gov/teachers.
