Both basic and advanced crossword puzzles are included, and each of them comes with a word bank option for even more differentiation! Full solution keys and vocabulary / study lists also included so teachers have everything they need!
WWII in HD
is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the United States participation in World War II. The series helps students trace major events in the war by helping them see them through the eyes of twelve real individuals who lived it. This unique approach helps personalize the war for students, making it far more real to them than can a traditional textbook presentation.
This crossword puzzle pack covers Episode 9: “Edge of the Abyss” which examines two of the war’s final offensives: The Battle of the Bulge in the European Theater and the assault on Iwo Jima in the Pacific Theatre.
TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES IN THIS WWII IN HD CROSSWORD PUZZLE PACKET
This packet provides teachers with both student materials and instructor answer keys, including everything needed to use the puzzles as a review worksheet or quiz covering the target episode of WWII in HD.
For each included puzzle, you’ll get two answer keys:
• A traditional crossword answer key consisting of a solution grid accompanied by the list of clues students used.
• A vocabulary / study list answer key that can make it easier to go over answers out loud with the class. With the list format, you won’t have to hunt for a term on the grid – you can find it listed right alongside its corresponding clue!
DESIGNED FOR DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING!
I believe in differentiating instruction to best meet student needs. This puzzle packet therefore offers you a lot of different difficulty levels and options.
• To start with, there are two different puzzles, designated A and B. Puzzle A is the “advanced” level, containing a variety of both “need to know” and “nice to know” items from the target episode of WWII in HD.
• Puzzle B is the “basic” level, consisting of a simplified version of Puzzle A. As such, it focuses mostly on high-priority “need to know” historical information.
• Both the advanced and basic puzzles are differentiated even further – each one is provided in both a standard format and a word bank format. The standard format just offers students clues and a grid to fill in, while the word bank format also provides students with an alphabetized list of all the answers. The word bank option can be the best approach for students who need that little extra boost to help them complete their WWII review worksheet puzzle!
