    PM me with your email address and I can send you a couple things I used last year. Isn't it great that the state of Texas requires us to to teach these things, but provides NO resources to do it. I spent many hours googling Navajo Code Talkers last year.

    A good book for you to read so you have a better understanding of what the code talkers had to go through is called, Code Talker: The First and Only Memoir by One of the Original Navajo Code Talkers of WWII. Written by Chester Nez. It would be too graphic for 2nd grade, but you could pass on the not so gory details.
