Activity Overview

As it's name suggests, fighting in World War II took place across the globe. In this activity, students will research one of the three major theaters of war from World War II: Pacific, European, or North African. Students will create a spider map storyboard that represents the climate/weather of the theater, the countries that fought in that theater, and style of warfare that was used in the theater. For each cell, students will include a visual representation of their point of emphasis and include a description of each.

Extended Activity

In this extended activity, students will create a storyboard that represents a specific battle or event that took place in the World War II theater that they researched. Students can include primary source descriptions of the conflict or summarize the research that they found. Depending on the discretion of the teachers, students can create the storyboard using the characters and scenes available or use actual images from the battle or event.
