This handout covers the initial success of the Axis power in WWII: blitzkrieg, the takeover of France, the invasion of Russia, the expansion of Japan, etc. The lesson chapter and lesson number refer to the Pearson/AGS Globe World History textbook. This powerpoint is best used in special education classes or with students who are low readers. Its purpose and function is described in Lesson Plan - World War II, a free document, and it goes with the 27.3 powerpoint and lesson handout. I often use this assignment as homework.
