They learnt about children who helped grow food at home due to food shortages, the Boy Scouts doing farm work and the Girl Guides knitting socks and scarves to send to the British soldiers, and raised money to help parts of the war. Then, they used their knowledge to debate whether or not the government should have used children this way in the war effort.
