Product Description
This is an original board game that I made to portray the positives and negatives of the World War II economy on the American homefront. For example, students will sometimes land on spots where they will advance because women and minorities can now obtain jobs because other men are drafted into the war. Alternatively, they may land on spots where they have to go back because they have to ration supplies.

A worksheet is also included (both in .pdf and .docx format if you want to edit) that allows students to pause at certain spots in the game to respond to questions - yes, they actually have to learn!

This fits into a regular 35-40 minute class period.

Preview shows half of board. I printed the board pages on 11x17 paper and laminated.
