Product Description
In this interactive activity, students participate in a “swing-dance party”. Each student is assigned a group in America during World War II to represent during the activity. The groups include: Women, Servicemen, Consumers, Government, African-American’s, Mexican-American’s, German Resident-Aliens, or Italian Resident-Aliens.

Each student will share information about their assigned group as students take notes on the corresponding handout. Each time they are asked to find another partner, they will have a chance to swing dance just like they did in the 1940’s! To assess their knowledge at the end of the activity they will be asked to create an acrostic about World War II on the Home Front.

There are several options to complete this activity: pairs or groups can work together to analyze the placards, post them on the wall and complete a gallery walk, post the placards on GoogleClassroom and have them work independently. The possibilities are endless!

-Detailed Lesson Plan
