This cooperative learning project for World War II has students read about 7 key battles and create engaging radio news segments just like Americans would have heard in the 1940's! Everything you need to complete this fun, creative lesson is included! My students have made some incredibly entertaining reports over the years, complete with sound effects and fantastic old-time accents! Can be presented in class or recorded and turned into podcasts or MP3s based on your technology resources.
