The World War Two Preview Collage can be used in a variety of ways--completed in small groups, in pairs, or individually. It was designed to be done by students who are just beginning to learn about or previewing the material, but for lower level students, it could also be used as a unit assessment.
With this collage, students will preview material about WWII by researching and creating a collage of primary and secondary source images. Topics include the cause of the war, Allies and Axis Nations and leaders, life on the homefront, D-day, the atomic bomb and many other subjects typically covered in a World or US History World War II Unit.
The common core ELA History/Social Studies Standards that this project addresses are:
Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively, as well as in words) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
Integrate information from diverse sources, both primary and secondary, into a coherent understanding of an idea or event, noting discrepancies among sources.
