Families during World War II would have been affected by various political and social issues. Farmers might have wanted to encourage home canning and higher productivity; the radio station owners would have been bombarded by political news releases, etc.
Each family group should develop an item or items which represent an issue that would have touched their lives. Make buttons, radio announcements, posters, or some other form of propaganda about your particular issue.
