Included here are the supplementary materials I use that coincide with the PowerPoint I created for World War II covering the *Virginia Standards of Learning (SOLs) for middle school history, which includes the following lessons/topics:
1.Rise of Dictators (Fascism)
2.War Map Activity (you have to supply the blank maps)
4.Steps to War (1933-39)
5.Europe at War (1939-41)
7.From Neutrality to Direct Involvement
9.The Home Front
10.Holocaust (Lesson centers around the video "Auschwitz: If You Cried, You Died"
11.From Winning to Rebuilding (Lecture on D-Day, Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Marshall Plan, and United Nations)
The materials I use for this unit include formal assessments, study guides, guided reading assignments, student note-taking handouts, history project assignment, video clips for this PowerPoint and more.
Visit my website at http://www.mrwalton.org/6thgrade-Work.htm to view student work of their WWII Photo Story projects.
I hope this helps anyone looking to teach this unit. Thank you.

*Virginia SOLs exceed the Common Core Standards.
