If you have not studied World War II with your students, I highly suggest it. What happened in those years is highly likely to happen again, many would say we are already heading toward it. Either way, it is an important moment in history and this unit will make the difficult topic more understandable and accessible.
If you are not subscribed to SCRIBD, we highly recommend it. Many of the books in our units are included in the subscription and it is a great homeschool tool. We were surprised to find out that it includes a free subscription to Curiosity Stream, along with other great apps. That's a homeschool bonus! All the books in this unit are available on SCRIBD.

This unit study contains a list of resources and activities for you to use in your studies. Choose those that will best suit your students, time, and learning environment.
