Activity Overview


D-Day is one of the most well known moments of World War II, and served as an important moment in changing the tide of the war. For this activity, students will create a spider map that answers the 5 Ws of D-Day: who, what, when, where, and why. Students can create their own questions or use teacher-created questions.


Extension Activity

For this extended activity, students should create a T-Chart that compares and contrasts the different beach invasions during D-Day. Students should select from Utah beach, Omaha beach, Gold beach, Juno beach, and Sword beach. Students should research the terrain, leaders, casualties, and outcomes of the invasions and share with their peers the similarities and differences between these incredibly significant beaches for the Allied liberation of France.
