I'm Fran, and I'm going to told you about our last lesson. Today's lesson has been at the
1st period of the day. Today our classmates Marta and Silvia had done the make up exam of the 2nd term, I hope they pass the exam with a good mark.
The rest of the class has continued with the World War I, the first thing that we had done, has been the correct the exercises that we had for today's lesson: We had to make 2 exercises from Monday, and one scheme from Tuesday.
The first exercise was related with the outbreak during the World Wor I, and this exercise has been corrected by Nuria, and the correction of this exercise is:
-28th of July: Austria-Hungary declared war to Serbia.
-30th of July: Russia mobilized its trops against Austria-Hungary.
-1st of August: Germany declared war to Russia and to France on the 3rd of August. On the 4th of August Germany invaded Belgium (Schieffen-Plan) to occupy France. The United Kingdom declared war to Germany when Belgium was invaded.
Only Italy kept out of war.
Related to that Paqui has explained the outbreaks of this war on the blackboard with drawings, and later has explained us the Schieffen-Plan, and it consisted in:
Germany war plan Minister who prepared Germany's war plan in 1905: simultaneous attack on 2 fronts:Russia and France through Belgium.
The plan failed because France wasn't defeated in 5 weeks and the fronts establized in the East and North.
Later Azahara has corrected the other exercise, which consisted to correct the features of the World War I, the correction is:
-New and deadlier armament.
