What was the impact of the Great War in the United States? Use Over Here – The American Home Front to complete the general information as well as the specific role sheet presented to you in class. You will share your story (and a primary source or two) with everyone in our next class. If you don’t fill in all of the notes on your note sheet, you should be all right – but you have to be prepared for your role!
You should also take a look at how the Great War affected Wisconsin. I have a podcast you should listen to regarding Milwaukee (there is a topic for notes on your Home Front handout), and you can also check out some of the following links below – mostly because you love history and Wisconsin …
- Through The World Wars at the Wisconsin Veteran Museum – you may have been here in 4th grade – and you can visit it for extra credit over the next couple of weeks!
- Roses of No Man’s Land and Eyes of the Army – Two very cool sites from the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, chock full of primary sources!
