As you all know, World War II began in 1939 and ended in 1945. However, the United States did not enter the war until 1941. The war was fought between two major groups of nations, the Allied and Axis Powers. We have learned about how the U.S. entered the war, the major leaders in the war, how WWII affected the U.S. home front, the role women played in the war, the locations of the countries that participated, and the affects that the war had on the U.S. economy. You have also completed several projects and activities that helped you learn more about World War II. I hope that you enjoyed this lesson and retain this knowledge as we move on to future lessons in Social Studies.
