Bring technology in to the classroom and send your students off on a virtual tour of some of the most famous and most notable sites of the second World War. Students will use Google Earth to search, observe and discover various details about some of these famous sites that provided the backdrop for World War 2. Printable work sheets are ready to be printed off and handed to students for them to record their findings as they visit each site. Finally, they will be asked to consider some of the more humanitarian issues and questions that surrounded the war. For example, what would cause students to oppose or support a war effort like the one that existed in the 1940's. They will also be asked what each site helps us infer about the social, political and economic nature of the war effort. Whether your'e looking for a boredom buster, a shake up to help break the monotony of guided notes, or just looking to incorporate some technical and geographic skills into your bag of tricks, this lesson is for you. I've used this for seven years with my high school World Social Studies courses and they are some of my student's favorite activities.
