WW II Powerpoint Project

Report
World War II – Memorial Project
Created by John Nitcy, Business Teacher
Sandpoint, High School – Sandpoint Idaho
The purpose of this Powerpoint Project is to help the
current generation appreciate the sacrifices of the greatest
generation, abroad and at home during World War II. This
collection of the slides and hyperlinks, will hopefully be
interesting enough to generate student interest in the most
significant event of the 20th century, WWII. As a fellow
teacher in the public school system, feel free to use this
material in any way possible. It is extremely important that
none of us forget what the WWII generation did for the
world; and also in our daily lives here in the United States.
This project is still a work in progress.
Take the WWII Candy Pretest!
