Use this package to teach your students the parallels between the 9/11 attacks and Pearl Harbor. These two events create a much more "real" feeling for the students as they have grown up in the aftermath of 9/11.
This lesson will introduce students to the main cause of the United States declaring war on Japan: Pearl Harbor. This is a catastrophic event paralleled only by an event such as 9/11 and should be treated as such. The students will analyze primary sources of individuals who were present at Pearl Harbor during the attack, as well as Japanese accounts, and Americans on the mainland.
