Visit the New Orleans-based museum all about World War II via the web site and its various interactive components. While some areas (videoconferences) are fee-based, and some feature information about visiting the actual museum, there is a rich collection of information and multimedia experiences to make world war II history meaningful. 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.

In the Classroom

This site could be the focal point for an extensive unit on World War II, with different student groups investigating aspects of the war. Or feature this site during a single lesson on D-Day. 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 Adobe Spark for Education, reviewed here.
