Finishing Up Our World War 2 History Unit

We didn't really take a summer break, we just had shorter school weeks, doing lessons Monday-Wednesday. Last Wednesday, we finished up our history unit on World War II.

We read all of the book, World War II for Kids.

We did several of the activities in the book, such as making a field ration box and eating only what was in it for a day.

We also started some seeds and started sprouting a potato for a small "victory garden".

DH and Blaze spent two nights watching the movie Patton. This was something that DH really wanted to do with Blaze, because his father had taken him to see Patton in the movie theater.

The BBC had a couple of good programs about what people on the home front were going through during the war.

Now, on to the 1950's!
