Upcoming Webinar:The 70th Anniversary of the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor
A FREE Electronic Field Trip for Students and Teachers from The National WWII Museum
In the war that changed the world it was the day that changed the war—a “Day of Infamy.”
That day brought the United States into WWII, adding the strength and determination of the American people to the Allied arsenal as it struggled to defeat the Axis. Through this special, live Electronic Field Trip, students will explore Japanese and American motivations and actions through maps, primary sources, and a trip through the Museum’s Pearl Harbor exhibit. Students will also encounter stories of survivors and pay tribute to the lives that were lost. Students will be able to submit questions during the presentation and teachers will receive classroom materials—including a pre and post-test—to supplement the information presented. Appropriate for students in grades 5-12.
