Floe animation for Open Education Week | Open Education Week
If you want to understand what FLOE does and how it can help you use free resources to help all learners, then you can watch this video.

Another piece from connextions - a website and shared question bank that includes all questions that are open licensed and let you mix and remix around your topic.

The other is "what was it like for children in world War 2" which is a fascinating way to approach this with any children.
