The fighting in WWII fits on one page with this gigantic graphic organizer. Answer key included.
Just use the large tray in your copy machine. If you cannot print directly to a copy machine or to a standard printer it can likely be printed in your administration offices. I've attached both a PDF and a Microsoft Publisher version of each.
Also included are twenty questions for student use with the completed graphic organizer. The questions, in Microsoft Word for easy editing, force students into understanding the sequence of events and deal with some of the extremes of the war – deadliest battle, greatest naval victory, etc. Answer key included.
