This activity asks students to research both the Nuremberg Trials and the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal.
Students are presented with a series of paragraphs about the trials where certain key words have been replaced with blanks. Their task is to discover what the correct words should be to fill in the blanks.
Students who complete this task will acquire strong background knowledge of the trials. Reviewing the sheets after they have been completed will reinforce the newly acquired knowledge as well as providing many opportunities for discussion of the larger issues.
