This activity will help students learn about the concept of the homefront during WWI. This resource includes:
-homefront data set for sorting
-an 'answer key' that groups together all homefront efforts
-an organizer that students use to rate homefront efforts
-instructions for how to use the resource
I have used this exact activity in my own classes and it has yet to let me down. You will be amazed by how much thinking and purposeful talk is stimulated by sorting and rating. Using this resource goes far beyond simply telling students that the homefront was and providing examples of homefront actions. Give it a try!
Note that each page can be edited. Even though this example is specific to Canada, you could easily modify it for any country in either of the World Wars.
