History Animated: Doolittle Raid
Another gold mine site for WW2 tech integration for kids is one I recently discovered, called historyanimated Here the small screen doesn't allow you to view the text, but you get the gist. That's General Doolittle speaking so this gives you a primary source bonus as well. I used Snapzpro to capture the video.
A really good idea is to give some Flash savvy kids the task of doing research on certain military campaigns and then creating an accompanying animation. It would be livelier than the Google Mapping "place matters" concept that I've been diligently and obsessively working on, but which I fear may not be worth the effort. It's tough to give it up.
