Four excerpts of oral histories from scientists that worked on the atomic bomb. Includes analytical question(s) after each excerpt, as well as two overall general questions about the use of the atomic bomb. Students should have some prior knowledge about the Manhattan Project and the dropping of the Atomic Bomb. This is a good supplemental exercise, for homework or to do with a partner during class.
The excerpts are short- max 8 sentences, but it may need to be modified for students that struggle with reading comprehension.
