Thank you for considering this product! This awesome animated PowerPoint is filled with over one HUNDRED great pictures, charts, sounds, explanations and map and battle animations. It will bring history alive for you and your students! This is far beyond the normal PowerPoints you're used to. Please check out the preview and I'm sure you'll agree.
My PowerPoint lessons are a mix of outline with important fill-in names, words and terms. Some slides will contain the outline portions with images, while other slides are fully for visual demonstration.
Lesson 7.5 “WWII: Victory in the Pacific” (75 slides) is part of an epic 6-part series (7.1 through 7.6) that covers the entire era of the Second World War and the early-mid 20th century. 7.5 picks up just after the Battle of Midway in 1942 and goes to the end of the war in the Pacific in 1945.
7.5 in particular covers: the battle of Midway; Japanese strategies for 1942-1943; American strategies for 1942-1943; the Guadalcanal Campaign; the Navajo Code Talkers; the death of Yamamoto; island-hopping; MacArthur and Nimitz; the battles of Philippine Sea and Leyte Gulf; submarine warfare; kamikazes; battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa; sinking of the Yamato; a comparison of the American and Japanese battle fleets; the Manhattan Project; fat man and little boy; Oppenheimer and Groves; death of FDR; the Potsdam Conference; president Truman; Enola Gay; destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki; Japanese surrender and V-J Day!
I have also created a number of original maps and battle animations that are perfect for this lesson. Such as the Battle of Guadalcanal; the Philippine Sea; Leyte Gulf; Okinawa; and many strategic maps of the Pacific.
This product would be awesome for any World or US History class. It can work perfectly for various age groups and ability levels. The product can be easily adapted and modified.
I have included the notes (with a key, just in case) in Word and pdf formats. I’ve also included the entire note packet for my WWII Unit as you may be interested in the other PPt. lessons for this unit (they are awesome).
Additionally, I have other supplementary readings/assignments for WWII. Please check out my store!
Thank you and enjoy!! If you like this product, please leave a positive comment...
