This lesson discusses America and the battle the people fought on the American Home front. Students will walk through a time in their life when they couldn't have something they desired and work through a reading, comprehension and discussion questions and a self led activity in which the students ration for a month. The lesson ties in with many ELA and writing standards and is adaptable for many different ages. It is a simple to set up yet very engaging lesson, it is usually one of my students favorites as they want to discuss which items they chose and the trials and tribulations the people of America went through during World War Two. Hope you enjoy!
