This is a four lesson unit by Reading Through History. It includes a reading and three pages of activities for each of the following topics. The lessons include:
1) The American Workforce
2) The US War Machine (War Production)
3) Rosie the Riveter
4) War Bonds, Rationing, Victory Gardens, and Scrap Metal Drives
There is enough material here to cover 2-4 days of class, depending on if one or two of the lessons are completed in each period. My students typically complete a lesson in about 25-30 minutes.
