This webquest allows students to learn about Japanese immigration to America. The Japanese Immigration Webquest uses an engaging website that allows students to explore the positive and negative experiences that Japanese immigrants had within the United States.
The webquest contains 50 questions and is a great way for students to learn more about the following topics:
• Origins of Japanese immigration to America and social change in Japan during the late 1800s
• Japanese immigration to Hawaii and planation culture
• Japanese immigration to the West Coast, work and discrimination
• World War II and internment camps
• Rebuilding Japanese American communities and changing laws
An answer sheet is included for the teacher. The webquest takes most students one class period to complete depending on the age of your students. Feel free to modify this activity if needed to fit the needs of your students. I highly suggest this webquest for students in grades 5-12.
