IKEducation D-Day Program: "Use it Up, Wear it Out, Make it Do, or Do Without"

Wednesday, June 5, 2019

Every aspect of American life was focused towards winning during World War II, and everyone tried to do their part to support the Allied troops. Participants will handle and evaluate a variety of primary sources like ration books and propaganda posters to learn about life on the American home front during World War II. Then, participants will play a board game that immerses them in the rationing and recycling programs that helped our troops win the war. Appropriate for learners of all ages!
