Free World War 2 Classroom Simulation Activity: Battle of Iwo Jima
History can be difficult for students to understand and experience. Simulations help students put themselves in the past, learning about history in an authentically engaging way. Students love simulations because they don’t know what the final outcome will be. It’s an exciting learning experience!
This FREE minimal prep simulation puts students in the role of a soldier who fought in the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War 2. This resource is aligned to my World War 2 Unit Bundle.
This World War 2 Classroom Simulation activity includes:
The cards have a colored background to differentiate between the different types. However, if you prefer to save color ink, I have included blackline versions, and you can print onto colored paper. The only item you need besides what is included in this resource is one die. That’s it! Everything else you need is right here!
My students LOVE simulations! Not only are they engaging and fun, but students are also LEARNING more about the topic.
This simulation is a great activity to go with my World War 2 Unit: Complete Curriculum. If you are looking for comprehensive curriculum, be sure to check it out.
