WWII Secret Agents in France: Remembrance Day Lesson 1:1
WWII: Secret Agents in France is a captivating lesson which may be done in a single, or multiple lessons suitable for ages 8-12 but of interest for older students as well.
Students will be intrigued by the story of two Canadian secret agents who worked in France in WWII. They will then examine the Ethical Dimenion of this story in history, along with Christian Critical Thinking - Is a lie always wrong? Of course, as in all my curriculum, I do the research for parents/teachers, and give you great sources for thinking/answering this question while leaving it up to parental convictions.
A curated and reviewed audio story from a Canadian pilot who experienced help in enemy territory during WWII is valuable as a first-hand (primary source) account.
