Students review the people and events of World War 2 (WWII, WW2) by creating a timeline of specific items/events/people using political cartoons. There is a 2 part written academic portion to this assignment for each cartoon (clearly outlined in the instructions). Lastly, the students pick their favorite cartoon and explain why it is their favorite.
A selection of websites is included to help students start finding appropriate political cartoons, and a selection of topics is provided to get the students going on the right track. This can be completed as an individual, a pair, or a group. The assignment asks for 10 items on the timeline, but you can make this more difficult for students by having them include 15, 20, or by having them include political cartoons of opposite points of view on an event/issue/person. A points distribution is included.
