Molly Learns a Lesson
This book is about what people were doing during World War II as far as trying to help the war effort from their schools. The various classes at Molly's schools are coming up with different methods to help, things like scrap metal drives and sewing things that soldiers can use.
When the decision is made on what Molly's class will do, Molly disagrees and ends up trying to come up with a project of her own that she and two of her friends can do. They end up involved in the original project, though, and end up changing that to something even better that all the girls end up having fun being involved in.
There's the usual historical section and in this one it talks about the various scrap metal and other drives that were done. If you look at any high school yearbooks from the war years you will probably see things that the high school students did for the war effort.
