Use this powerpoint activity to teach students how to use a ration book, while they are creating their own. This is a very hands on project that students will enjoy, and they will also be able to understand the sacrifices that many families had to make in order to survive. This gives a great representation of just how hard it was to survive during these times.
You will also need a die and a deck of cards to do this activity. In my classroom, we did this each day and I would draw a few cards per student as they used their ration book to "buy" things. We did this as part of our Holocaust unit. Feel free to message me with other questions!
