WORLD WAR TWO AND WOMEN ON THE HOME FRONT
Grade 10 Social Studies
The Second World War brought rapid change in technology, industry, and social roles. It also brought opportunities for BC women to contribute to the war effort. Through exploration and discovery, students will learn to read primary sources. With primary archival documents, they will discuss the roles that women played in the BC shipbuilding industry and the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (Wrens), all while considering the context of the period.
Please note: Registration for LIVE programs must occur at least 2 hours before the scheduled program and provide an e-mail, or we can not guarantee that you will receive the link to participate. We will contact you before the program, and are available for Zoom troubleshooting aid up to 2 hours before the program start time.
