This complete lesson is PACKED with historical material, provided through clear and dramatically gripping methods. Students learn about the key events, battles, and strategies from 1942-1945 that helped the Allied Powers win victory in Europe during World War Two. Depending on the length of your class, this lesson may take two days to cover.
An engaging, clear PowerPoint helps students put significant military events in fluid context. Five historical video clips corresponding to major events throughout allow visualization and deeper understanding. Easy to follow guided notes focus student attention on important details and provide organized, retained information after class is over, while allowing students to stay in the moment during class. Students also complete a primary source activity, delving into two historical accounts of the D-Day Invasion and answering comprehension and analysis questions. See preview for excerpts.
