Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Resources Snippet:

  1. Display a World Map for all students to see.
    Ask: What is something the entire world had in common during the 1940s?
  2. Allow for responses and discussion, leading to World War II.
  3. Ask students to name as many people, places, or events they may have heard about related to WWII. Display their responses in three columns.
  4. Tell students they will be learning about WWII. Distribute the World War II content pages. Read and review the information with the students, referring to the world map when necessary.
  5. Many students may not know where various countries are located in relation to the United States.
  6. Following the reading, distribute the Activity pages. Pair students.
  7. Review the instructions. Students will research each of the terms and write a single sentence describing its relevance to WWII in the rectangle next to the term. (Be sure students do not number, draw a shape, or place any other marks on the rectangles.)
  8. Allow the students access to the Internet or other resources.
  9. Even though students are working in pairs, each student should write out the terms and description on the activity pages. (Make extras if necessary.)
  10. Once all of the work is completed, allow student volunteers to read the sentences they wrote for the terms. Tell students to make sure their terms are written correctly.

Great website!

Easy to find things, easy to download, no confusing checkout or signing away your first born. I'm a first time homeschool mom and it's a lot to get accustomed to, so you have things laid out simply is a gold star in my grade book!
