Welcome to your course on the experimental weapons of World War Two! In this course, we will examine how Axis and Allied countries tried to create new weapons that they believed would change the course of the war. From using bats to deliver bombs to curved gun attachments, some of these ideas were flawed from the beginning, whereas others may have been just too advanced for the time period and technology. Although most of these weapons never saw military action or were never even finished,...
Students will learn about the unique ideas for weapons of World War Two. Students will critically examine the flaws of these weapons to understand why they were only experimental weapons.
I have an undergraduate degree in History and I am a certified teacher with qualifications to teach intermediate and senior divisions of History. I have specifically studied this era thoroughly and the major events that occurred during this time. All of the class content will be researched information that is from factual reliable sources accompanied by my extensive knowledge of these subjects.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
- This class discusses the weapons of World War Two. As most of these weapons never saw military action, they did not cause any destruction or loss of human life. However, we will be discussing the intention of these weapons and how these countries believed it would change the war. Information and images will be age-appropriate. - This class will use the website Kahoot, which is a trivia-based game. Students will be sent a link during class time through the Zoom chat which will take them directly into the game where they will enter a nickname. No personal information or downloading is required to participate.
