World War II At Home: Californians' Involvement in the War Effort

Description: After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the American economy shifted into a wartime production mode to meet new demands. Like Americans everywhere, Californians contributed significantly to U.S. efforts during the Second World War. They lived with rations of such necessities as tires, gasoline, sugar, and other foodstuffs and volunteered for organizations such as the Red Cross. Many women went to war as nurses, Women's Army Corps (WACs), Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVEs), and Women Air Service Pilots (WASPs), or to work in manufacturing jobs. Schools and families planted "Victory Gardens" to stave off a food shortage. Students learn of these from ration books, gas rationing ads, defense bulletins and more. Standards 4.4.4, 4.4.5, 11.7.5 and 11.7.6

This student project was selected as a Best of 1999 Website by Access Magazine. Standard 11.7.5
