Description

Course Description Icon

The year was 1941 in the heat of World War 2.

Hitler's Nazi Germany is attacking the Axis Powers in Europe (Poland, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, and Romania.)

This lesson helps students understand Germany's famous message decrrypting device, ENIGMA, and how a team in Bletchly Park Engliand (with the help of Polish code-breaker) built "Bomba.", the machine to help crack the ENIGMA code and stop the war. 


A Summary

 

Minimum Grade Best for students who completed middle school
Complexity Level Medium
Length 20 minutes / Class
Subject Area ENIGMA and Bomba

Target Audience

Because most students do no learn about the World Wars until late middle school this might be tough to understand for some students. The focus of this class will not be on WAR (though it's a big part of what was going on), the focus will be on code cracking.

Testing?

YES.  Just like most of our micro-lessons there will be a test after this lesson.

The entire class is 20 minutes long. 15 minutes will be devoted to material mixed with tests and games. The remaining 5 minutes for testing or retesting.

You will do great. Don't worry. You can always retest again if you aren't able to achieve 80% or better the first time around.
