This vocabulary activity includes both world history content and critical thinking skills.
First, give each pair of students a set of vocabulary word cards (printable from this product). Then, move through the slideshow to complete the various activities. (Making connections, building sentences, discussing prior knowledge, etc.) Students will talk in partners and you may also choose to have students share with the whole group after each activity.
There are slides with definitions for each of the 13 words to be sure that all students have some understanding regardless of their prior knowledge of the subject. The words all focus on the topic of World War II.
