High In the Sky

Our studies on World War I are coming to a close this week or next.  Last week we read about the United States joining the Allies in 1917 for the final year of the war.  Jacob's reading assignments focused on the home front, on the war effort in the States, the changes war brought, and on propaganda and recruiting posters.  I gave him the assignment to come up with a motto and make up his own recruiting poster.  

I wasn't surprised when Jacob chose an airplane theme for his poster.  His motto is "Flying High in the Sky is Better than Down on the Ground."  I was so pleased with the results of his finished poster.
