Alliances and the buildup to the First World War diplomatic simulation role play
© www.teachithistory.co.uk 2014 22109 Page 9 of 9 Teaching notes This simulation is designed to introduce students to the alliances that were in place by
1914. You may wish to start the lesson with a pair & share discussion about reasons to go to war in order to establish students prior knowledge of the major causes. How it works Split your students into eight groups, each representing a country in 1914:
1.
Great Britain
2.
Serbia
3.
Germany
4.
Belgium
5.
Italy
6.
Austria
7.

Russia It is a good idea to project a map of Europe in 1914 so students have a firm grasp of their geography A good one to use is https://www.mtholyoke.edu/courses/rschwart/hist151/maps/QuizI2009/slides/Europe%201 900.html as it does not have the alliances marked on it. The role play activity is designed to take around 30 minutes. There is an information
sheet for each country which sets the scene and explains the activity. Each country will then need to receive ab noteb from you at regular intervals (roughly every 5 minutes. Some countries receive three notes and others four. These are provided in numbered order in the country specific tables for you to cutout. Students then need to respond to the other countries before the next note is delivered. It is helpful to circulate during this time to encourage appropriate responses (this can include lies, distortions and bids for alliances. Students will need blank paper to write their own diplomatic notes. When the simulation has finished you can discuss who has made alliances with who, and what they feel about the state of Europe in 1914. This could be consolidated with map work on the Triple Alliance and Triple Entente.
