***Updated to include handout (timeline graphic organizer) for students to follow along
This PowerPoint goes through events before and after Pearl Harbor. Students follow along to create a timeline with events and descriptions.
The PPT includes:
directions on how students are to set up the timeline
series of slides on the Russo-Japanese War and its importance (1904)
slides on the Annexation of Korea (1910) with primary source
slides on Japan's role in WWI
slides on Japan's role in WWII (Nanking Massacre and more)
slides on the Pearl Harbor attack, maps, diagrams, descriptions
series of world maps showing the progress and changes throughout WWII
Information and visuals for Japanese Internment
WWII closure (atomic bombs)
A completed timeline for students to compare
A writing prompt
I like to supplement this assignment with a few clips from the film Pearl Harbor, making it a 2-period event!
