So many uses!

Lola Jennings- Edquist's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:56 AM

What an awesome map! A great resource for teaching kids history- and making it simple to understand, as well as interactive. Can be used in conjunction with the 'Protest Sites' map I scooped above; in a unit on protests and change around the world. 

 

I think it links to most areas of Humanities, which is cool. I showed it to some of the kids from placement and they loved it!

Great Quick tool to use and very informative.

This is a great website! It shows never before seen photos from WWII. Something to notice about the photos is the section on Japanese-Americans. It's an eye opener to the way in which Japanese-Americans were treated during WWII. Many americans are almost blind to what the US was trying to end, German expansion in Europe and ending the holocaust, however at the same time, we had our own concentration camps here in CalifornIa.

Nice quick way to get the user to see some of the key aspects of the War.  Showing the pan-germanism that Hitler esposed when taking the Sudetenland in the former Czechoslovakia to showing the suffering the civilian population of Leningrad.

World War II had a profound impact on so many places; the issues that contributed to these events and complex and inter-related.  This interactive with videos, pictures and commentary is a veritable treasure trove of resources for teachers and students alike.
