World Wars Activity


I'm a first year teacher and I am looking for ideas on hands on (non-lecture or video) activities for WWI and WWII for World History so preferably not just American-centricism. If you have any ideas I'd greatly appreciate it!

Have a poppy planting in the football field. A little paper poppy - one for every casualty from your state. That's about 8,500 just for WW2 alone. For extra effect, do it overnight...

Get the kids to re-enact the WWI as a bar fight sketch.

Each child could wear the flag of a different country and then act out what they do.
