World War II in the News

How did World War II affect your student’s local community?  That is the focus question of this fifth grade lesson that looked at newspaper advertisements and articles from the Camden, SC during the war.  Students gather information from their local papers and create their own news from what they have learned.  They also explore World War II through a teacher created WebQuest that you and your students can access at http://www.schoolnotes.com/29078/betsylong.html.
