History Channel Lesson Plans
We are pleased to be able to make The History Channel WWII Teaching Manual available here to help teachers bring the history of World War II alive in the classroom.
The manual is intended to help promote the study and understanding of World War II in elementary and secondary schools. It also assists students to become familiar with the National World War II Memorial, located on the National Mall between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. The World War II Memorial welcomes thousands of school groups annually. For those students who will visit the Memorial, it is our hope that these materials will enrich their visit.
For each grade level, the manual includes readings, discussion questions, activities and portfolio projects that are designed to be used to enrich any curriculum. Also provided are a resource guide and a selection of primary source materials.Download the Teaching ManualPDF 1.2MB
