|The lesson below was designed by Mrs. Ullrich, a grade school teacher in Galesburg, IL. She had outstanding results with this lesson and was generous enough to contribute it for use on this site and in other classes as well. For printing purposes, a text and a rich text format version of the lesson plan is also available.|
During and following the period of World War II, many artifacts
were kept by soldiers and their loved ones. These souvenirs and
sentimental reminders were kept to reflect upon lost family members
or just to remember a horrific event which occurred in our past,
hopefully never to be repeated. Many of these articles were tucked
away in boxes and trunks and then buried in attics, basements,
and garages for years.
What types of articles do you think might have been kept to be reflected upon years later by people who lived during this time, their children, or grandchildren?
It is these types of items that you will create and include in your own Attic Box from the World War II era.
Materials: a shoe box, materials to decorate the box, replicated items that you would have had sentimental value to someone from this era.
Requirements: You must have at LEAST five items but no more than ten items, please. You cannot have more than three written items. All items must fit in your box.
CAUTION: Be sure all items are appropriate for a school presentation. Remember your effort, quality, and relevance of the items to the World War II era will be used in determining your grade.
