The U.S. World War I Centennial Commission and National History Day have created "Who They Were," an activity geared toward engaging young people in exploring and sharing stories of their local World War I generation. Individuals or groups can use the Activity Toolkit to create short presentations about their community's WWI generation. The information can then be presented as a narrative speech at a WWI event at their school or in their community. Participants can also share their work online on the 'Who They Were' map where they can also see what other classes and groups from around the country have discovered. For more information, visit the VA VAntage Point Blog.
