WWII Eastern Front: Unrelenting Cruelty from Barbarossa to Berlin.
Prepare to be shocked! This product contains fascinating informational text exploring World War II, specifically the brutal Eastern Front. This product also has excellent maps and pictures to aid in your students’ ability to learn about this most destructive conflict in world history. I believe often the Eastern Front—arguably the most important during WWII—often gets ignored in World History curriculum. This product is a must in any exploration of the Second World War.
The product explains the following: the unique cruel brutality of the Eastern Front (Germany v. USSR), the German-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact and why it was enacted and how it affected Eastern Europe, the reasons Hitler decided to violate the pact and invade the USSR, the German invasion plan known as the Operation Barbarossa, reasons why Barbarossa succeeded and why it ultimately failed, Stalin’s leadership and Order #227, the Battle of Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, Soviet success at driving out the Germans and seizing Eastern Europe, Soviet invasion of Germany and the conquering of Berlin, how the Eastern Front affected the war generally, shocking stats and quotes.
Included are all the documents (Word and pdf and PPt.) you need to print off for hard copy or deliver in an e-learning format. This product would fit wonderfully into a blended learning plan or a close read lesson. Great review questions are at the end and of course answer key is included.
