Technology of World War II WORKSHEETQuick View

Technology of World War II WORKSHEET

Technology of World War II Maxim Machine Gun 1884 Hiram Maxim (above) invented the first portable, automatic machine gun. Machine guns fired hundreds of rounds per minute and were used by all the combatants in World War I. First Military Plane 1909 The earliest military planes were used for reconnaissance of enemy positions. A passenger could drop bombs (below) and, in later World War I models, operate a machine gun. Poison Gas 1915 Poison gases were introduced to help break the stalemate of trench warfare. They caused suffocation, blistered skin, or blindness (below) to those exposed. Tanks 1916 Tanks like the early British model shown above, enabled armies to travel over uneven ground and barbed wire. Although too slow to be used to full advantage at first, they were devastating against soldiers in trenches Blitzkrieg 1939 The Germans used blitzkrieg or “lightning war” to invade Poland. They employed air strikes, fast tanks, and artillery, followed by soldiers sped into battle on trucks (shown above). They swiftly overwhelmed Poland and disrupted its command and communications German Me 1944 262 Military jet planes were first used by the Germans in 1944. These planes added speed to fire power. The Me 262 (below) was the only jet to be used extensively in World War II. Atomic Bomb 1945 The United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan and became the first nation to use nuclear weapons. An atomic bomb (right) creates an explosion that causes massive damage. The radioactive particles released are carried by winds for weeks. Questions: 1. How did technology change the nature of war in the 20th century? 2. Compared with earlier guns, what made machine guns so effective? 3. How did airplanes change the way war was carried out?

This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by 'ragging' or grading the difficulty of the slides so that the learners can chose their level of challenge.

The information slides for the market place activity looks at the roles women played as in the land army, working in factories, as secret agents or as volunteers for WAAF, ATS, WVS and the WRNS (WRENS). I have also included a table with two levels of challenge for students to complete whilst reviewing the slides during the market place activity. The aims and objectives for these resources are: Theme: The Home Front Know: Why was there a shortage of ‘manpower’? Understand: What roles did women play during the Second World War? Evaluate: How important were these roles in helping to win the war? WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: Why was there a shortage of ‘manpower’?
