tanks and military trucks.
Shipyards operated 24 hours a day. All of this
production created millions of new jobs

Next, the teacher will instruct students to get one

white board and a dry erase marker. The students will
find a partner that they are sitting near to work with.
The teacher will instruct students to stand back to

on their whiteboards. When the students have
answered the questions, the teacher will ask the
students to turn around and discuss their answers.

match. The teacher will give the correct answer and
will repeat the process with several more questions.
