Operation Overlord: D-Day

This high school lesson explores the D-Day invasion.  Working with documents from the South Caroliniana Library and taking a tour of the South Carolina State Museum students learn about World War II from first hand accounts and by interacting with objects from the war.  At the close of the lesson, students will write letters to veterans thanking them for serving and a reflective essay on what they learned.
