Are you looking for a fun way to review with students regarding the World War II? In this review game two students play at a time in front of the class with one student seated facing away from the screen and one student seated so they are facing the screen (if you're old enough to remember the $100,000 Pyramid game show it is similar to that). Each round consists of 6 random topics that have something to do with World War II and will be uncovered with your click of the mouse. The team has 60 seconds (you, the teacher, are the time keeper) to complete as many as they can in that round. Sometimes the topics are connected and sometimes it is a hodgepodge of vocabulary.
There are 16 rounds with 6 topics in each round for a total of 96 vocabulary terms regarding people, places, and events from the time period of World War II.
My students love playing review games like this because it gives each student a chance to take part in the review. You can divide this into a winners and losers bracket for more repetition over two days to help them develop ways to explain the topics. I always believe that when students are actively involved they are thinking, engaged, and developing a better understanding.
