World War II truly was a world war and was fought all across the globe. In this interactive video, we will explore 3 different ecosystems similar to those that soldiers had to face during the war: desert mountains; subtropical swamps; and rocky, sandy beaches. We’ll learn about the physical characteristics of these ecosystems and how they influence what plants and animals can survive there. Just like the plants and animals adapted to those landscapes, soldiers in World War II had to adapt in similar ways. The National WWII Museum will be joined by educators from LOOP NOLA and Museum of Science, Boston. Appropriate for grades 3-5. Note: for optimal viewing experience, we recommend accessing these programs on a desktop computer, laptop, or tablet device.
