Teaching materials for third-year students who attended Kokumin Gakko (equivalent to a modern-day elementary school) in Aichi Prefecture during the Pacific War have been discovered in Aisai, Aichi Prefecture.

Believed to have been used for summer homework, the materials recommend students visit injured soldiers, pay respects to the fallen, and memorize the different types of enemy aircraft. Experts consider them to be “important materials that proved war education was part of the children’s daily lives.” The materials were displayed at the Saori Community Center until March 11.
