Visit the New Orleans-based museum all about World War II via the web site and its various interactive components.

Find lesson plans at the left under "Teachers." Click WWII History button at the right to find many pages of information and a timeline. Don't miss many choices under Student Projects. The See and Hear menu (up top) offers more interactive options, such as a newly re-launched Science and Technology of World War II interactive with additional lesson plans included.

tag(s): d day (8), veterans (19), world war 2 (142)

In the Classroom

Ask students to decide which technology depicted in the science and technology interactive was the most important factor in the outcome of the war. Share videos on your projector or interactive whiteboard, or assign students to create their own online posters about different facets of World War II using GlogsterEDU reviewed here.

tag(s): maps (287)

In the Classroom

Use this site to find events occurring around the world. Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector.

Report findings using a blog, wiki, or through class discussion. Not comfortable with wikis? Have no wiki worries - check out the TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through. Challenge students to find their own news stories and create a short multimedia project highlighting "the news" by creating a talking avatar using a photo or other image (legally permitted to be reproduced) to explain their news story that they researched. Use a site such as Blabberize (reviewed here).
