The Five Wars Review

Time:  4 Weeks         Theme:  Conflict
Summary:   Study of World War I and II; the Korean War; the Cold War, and the Vietnam War
  • Conflict in the church
  • Debate
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Have a world war simulation throughout this unit.  
    • Week A ~ Divide your students into two groups--the Allied Powers and the Central Powers.   Create ways for the sides to gain points throughout the day--possibilities:   The side who is lined up first, the side who wins the recess game, and/or the side who is the quietest, the side whose spelling test average is highest, etc.  Keep the running points posted on the board.   Sharpen the competitive edge!
    • Week B ~ Continue the Allied and Central Powers.
    • Week C ~ The Cold War (little talking, but much competition)
    • Week D ~ North Korea and South Korea
Bulletin Board Ideas:
  • Quit griping about your church; if it were perfect you couldn't belong.
  • He who did well in war just earns the right to begin doing well in peace. Robert Browning
  • "The lamps are going out all over Europe. We shall not see them lit again in our lifetime." Sir Edward Grey
