To honor important events like Black History Month, Women's History Month and others, The National WWII Museum is introducing bookmarks you can download, print and distribute! They are a fun, easy way to learn World War II history. Check back as we add more to our collection. We're kicking it off with Black History Month - February, and will be adding a new bookmark each month of 2012.
Instructions: Download the bookmark by clicking the image below (note: there are two bookmarks on each page). Cut out the bookmark. Flip to the white side, cover half with glue using a glue stick, then fold in half along the center. That's it!
