World War II Global Collaboration Project

   

PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT

We are eighth-grade students from the Twelve Corners Middle School in Brighton, New York studying World War II.  We are interested in gaining a global perspective on the war by collaborating with students from other countries.  We have put together a summary of different topics related to World War II and we would like to see what students in other countries are taught about those topics, and how that differs from what we have learned.  Click on the outline links to find summaries, photographs, videos, and eyewitness accounts of the topics listed.
