Lesson 1

L.O. I can discuss how the war (WW2) had different effects on different countries.

This short film explains rationing in simple terms.

The notion of rationing and food shortages offers a glimpse of a world that you may not be familiar with.

We hear from an eye-witness called Graham, who recounts how he cycled ten miles because he heard there might be ice-cream.

We also hear from Gladys, who describes how her dad made a carrot Christmas pudding as they couldn’t get dried fruit.

The ‘Did You Know’ section explores how during Easter, some shops sold carrots on a stick instead of selling chocolate eggs. It also discusses the positive impact rationing had on the country's health.


Today you are going to conduct some research about two countries involved in the Second World War as an independent learning project and you will compare your findings. You will compare Britain with another country of your choice.

Lesson 2:

You will present your findings/comparison as either a poster or a leaflet. It should be informative and interesting to look at so try and make it as appealing as possible. You could include images and captions, quotations, key facts or maps.
