World War II part 1
Our study of WWII is fifty days long. In fact we’re not through yet. But I’ll share here the beginning of our study. There are just so many facets to it.
First we started with the who and when and where. So we’ve colored maps for axis and allies and labeled maps with the names of the leaders of the countries. We labeled maps with the countries that Germany barreled through. There are coloring pages for the axis and ally leaders as well. I made a little game for my first grader out of the one coloring page. We are also working on timelines. While we have a paper timeline that we add pieces to for each decade we’re going through, I am having my children make a more specific timeline online. It’s kind of fun because you don’t just add dates and names, but you can add text and pictures and click on the different timeline events to see and read more.
My daughter completed this whole packet of worksheets. Each page has a photograph or poster or political cartoon from the period with questions about it. She really enjoyed doing these, of course, history is one of her favorite subjects which always helps.
That’s enough for now. I’ll be back with lots more. Stew has been simmering for three hours. It’s time to eat 🙂
