Great tutoring materials for helping students learn about history! Super thorough and features great activities to use the new knowledge.
This was excellent! In the "end of year" time crunch, this really saved a lot of planning and preparation.

    What teachers are saying about this WWII Unit:

    ❤️ “This bundle is absolutely perfect for those students who are reluctant learners in history. We homeschool my daughter and struggled to find a US History curriculum that she enjoyed and learned from until we found Brainy Apples! These bundles are full of all of the information a student needs to learn about WWII in engaging ways like power points and fun videos from a variety of sources. My daughter now searches out her own videos from John Green, for example, in her other classes, because she enjoyed his videos so much in the power points from Brainy Apples. I can't say enough about these bundles! They made learning US History fun, challenging, and when my daughter wanted to expand on a particular subject, such as the roles of women during WWII, she easily had a lot of information to use to start a deeper dive into that subject! I'd highly recommend Brainy Apples to anyone!”

    ❤️ “My students enjoyed the film insertions (links) while I went over the PowerPoint and they filled in their slotted notes.  Really great PowerPoints!

    My students also enjoyed related mini assignments and felt prepared for the quizzes.  

    I can see how I'll adapt this very large pkg over the years and incorporate into projects and more. I'll use this for years to come!”

    ❤️ “Fantastic resource. My students enjoyed the activities. The guided notes were great for supporting students who need them over traditional note taking. The connection of the plans also made it easy for students to build knowledge and make connections.”

    ❤️ “Fantastic and extremely detailed! I paired it with some videos and my kids LOVED this- even though it's been a completely virtual experience. I used it a year ago and I have a lot of kids STILL talk about how much they learned from the powerpoints. Great job. Highly recommend.”

    ❤️ “My students were very engaged as we worked through the activities and had multiple discussions on the topics. Nicely put together. Thanks!”

    ❤️ “This bundle is a lifesaver! By the time I can get to this unit we are so crunch for time due to testing and other factors. This really made it easy to get through all the content in a really quick manner but still not compromise on the content. I will definitely be using this unit for years to come.”
