Rationed Item

 Information and Comments

Make an A4 poster similar to those shown but portray something that is relevant to our life and times ie something which we could reuse, save, recycle, not waste etc (you will be doing this at home for homework).



Continue with Letters and Documents. Click on the ration book. Either download the picture of the ration book or draw and then answer the questions. Drawing the book can be done at home.


Click onto Teachers and Parents, Printable worksheets. Open the rationing challenge. Print out the clothing and doll. Attempt the challenge. Present on coloured A4 paper.


Extension  Activity Make a larger doll using fabric, felt or textured paper. Try making a 3D one dressed in real clothes! You will earn a gold card for good effort!


Ask the shopper in your family to give you a LONG receipt from the supermarket. In class we will be analysing what you couldn't have bought, what you could have bought easily and what was rationed. We will see if your family could "survive" on those rations!
