Course by Sally

People and Places of World War II is a series of stand-alone unit studies. The first unit, “The Who’s Who of WWII and the Paths Leading Them to War” covers twenty-one weeks. The second unit, “The American Home Front” covers forty-seven weeks. These are excellent supplements to a history class or a great introduction to this period of history for students. The class consists of numerous games and activities, puzzles, and projects that help students develop and sharpen skills in critical thinking, research, note taking, handwriting, history, geography, reading, writing, art, math, analyzing, and much more. A list of additional resources for further study is also included.
