World War I Makes Learning Fun!
By Anna T. & Rachel J.
World War I was triggered by 3 things. First, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated in Bosnia by a Serbian nationalist. Second, in 1915, a German submarine torpedoed the Lusitania- a British passenger ship, killing 1,200 people. Last but not least, the Zimmerman Telegram. Germany promised Mexico US land if Mexico joined them.
