HOME FRONT DURING WWII ELECTRONIC FIELD TRIP:
“Don’t You Know There’s a War On?” The U.S. Home Front during WWII:
A FREE Electronic Field Trip from The National WWII Museum
To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the distribution of Ration Book One, join us for a special one-time only webinar about the United States Home Front. Students will explore scrapping, War Bonds, war production, and rationing through the eyes of children. Together they find answers more satisfying than the wartime standard: “Don’t You Know There’s a War On?” Your students will sing along to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, show off their jitterbug dance moves, and shop for groceries during 1944. A fun and entertaining program for the end of the school year! Perfect for grades 4-8.
