World War II – Environments

25 Information, comprehension and writing activities on World War II

The World War II subject area has been divided into 5 topics. For each topic, there is a talking information environment where sentences can be built up in the document, spoken as they are inserted, and eventually printed. This is followed by two comprehension activities, a structured writing activity and a word bank for students writing from the computer.

Available in a symbolised format or text only format.
