I plan on stealing this from you.  It does explain the major causes of the first World war.  

Technical Remarks:

I would have liked to see something that gave the unit a clear ending.  I could see students looking at the screen and wondering what to do next.

I like how you start off with multiple options and explains each one as the skides progress. I also like the mixed media and ending it on a lighter note.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the pictures overlap the text.
