World Wars I and II

World Wars I and II

My seventh grade son is very interested in the two World Wars. I would like to let him do a unit study on them. Has anyone done this before or have any good ideas? Obviously, we will look at library books and dvd's, but I want him to learn from a Christian perspective and would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks!

I have not done this yet with my kids but have you looked into Hands of a Child lapbooks?

Also, this company has lapbooks.

Truthquest history has guides:

Winter Promise covers WW 1 and 2 and a lot more in this guide and it includes other subjects.

You can also Google WW1 unit study and find tons of links, same with WW2 unit study.
I have used lapbooks from both companies but my kids don't really like lapbooks and I really think of them as glorified textbooks, read, answer questions, but in a prettier way. lol
I have Truthquest books and like them but they mostly have lists of books with some Christian commentary but not a lot more.
I have WP and have thought of getting the one I linked to youbut we have another one I'm using from them right now and I really don't have the extra money to spend.

This book has activities to go along with reading:

but it's not a Christian resource and I know nothing about it.
HTH!!

I know one book that my sons LOVE is the Usborne World Wars book. It's not Christian, but I didn't really find anything objectionable in it, aside from one lady who needed a higher cut top so I made one with a Sharpie. :) But the info and pictures and maps are wonderful.

Yep, same here.

Vision Forum also has some cool looking videos from a Christian POV.

re: World Wars I and II

Thank you so much for the ideas! I am excited to go look at them all! :)
