Social Studies: Decades project

For our class's decades project, my group chose to research the 1940's. We divided up the responsibilities, with some of us looking into the fashions of the decade, others looking into scandals or inventions. My contributions to the group included creating a dimensional image of Mount Rushmore, which was completed in 1941, and bringing in a victory garden. During WWII, food was rationed and planting  a victory garden helped make sure that there was enough food for our soldiers fighting around the world. Because canned vegetables were rationed, Victory Gardens also helped people stretch their ration coupons (the amount of certain foods they were allowed to buy at the store).  So, I decided a fun way to represent a victory garden would be to make a victory garden cake! Love how it turned out!
