This activity is a great way to get your students to understand the challenges facing the U.S. right after Pearl Harbor. This assignment/activity gets the students to generate solutions and ideas on what to do to get America ready for World War II. The issues/problems that are presented to the student(s) are those that actually faced our nation. Included is the sheet with the problems and specific directions to get the students to grapple and solve these issues. This can be done in groups or by the students individually.
