A pair of PowerPoint files containing eighteen presentations for a World History unit titled “The Second World War.”

The first PowerPoint file, “The Road to World War II,” is 25 slides in length. The second, “World War II and the Holocaust,” is 175 slides in length. In total there are 18 individual lessons, which in my classroom provides for 21 days of instruction:
7.1 The Road to World War II (1930-1936) - 1 day
7.2 The Road to World War II (1936-1937) - 1 day
7.3 The Road to World War II (1938-1938) - 2 days

Also included in this download is a 24-page set of visuals and activities to accompany the 18 lessons. In my classroom, students take Cornell style notes on the right side in their interactive notebooks; their corresponding visuals pages are glued on the left. These activities are completed before (vocabulary), during (visual labeling), and after (writing, thinking maps, etc.) completion of the presentation.

If you would like to download a full-preview for free of one of my units, in order to get an idea of the types of things you might find in them, please do a search on TpT for my unit titled “The Birth of Democracy.”

*There are references throughout the presentations to DVD clips I show during some of my presentations. These clips cannot, of course, be included with your download.
