We're All in this Together! We're All in this Together! How Students like YOU Helped Win WWII
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
Two Chances to Watch: 10:00am and 1:00pm CT

The WWII-era slogan—We're All In This Together!—included students just like yours on the Home Front. Help your students see themselves in history by joining WYES and The National WWII Museum for a fun, interactive, and LIVE electronic field trip all about the lives of students during World War II. Follow our student reporters as they explore the Museum, learn about rationing, grow a Victory garden, dance the jitterbug, and collect scrap for the war effort. Examine artifacts and primary sources, ask questions to our Museum's expert staff, tour immersive exhibits, and participate in live polls without leaving your classroom.

This FREE electronic field trip is appropriate for students in grades 4-8 and can be streamed directly to your computer and shown on your white board.
