Causes of the First World War visual hexagon activity

This visual hexagon activity focuses upon the key causes of the First World War. Students should be encouraged to identify the images and how they link to the central question and then make links where each side of a hexagon touches the side of another hexagon. Ideal for a plenary or summary session.
