How Does My Identity Shape My Experience in America? Activity 2:

What Was Life Like in the 1940s? How do we connect with the past?

Objective:

Students relate to children of the 1940s.

Procedure: Divide the class into 7 groups. Distribute one of the 7 photographs (located in Lesson 2 Activity 2 Resources section) to each group. Ask your students the following questions and have them take notes on their responses: What do these photos show us about time? How do these images represent America? What do they show about America’s identity? How was life in the 1940s different from life today? Share photographs on an overhead projector for group discussion. Have the class compare and contrast life in the 1940s and today. Ask your students if they would have wanted to live in the 1940s. Why or why not?

Assessment: 1. Participation in the group and classroom discussion. Extension: 1. Place the photographs so that all the students can see them. Have your students choose one photo that they feel a connection to. Then, have the students write a story in their journal that connects their identity in America to the photograph.
