Product Description
Students learn about the Pearl Harbor bombings and the US entrance to WWII in this complete lesson, with lesson plan, primary source reading, worksheet activities, and correlated PowerPoint.

The lesson begins with a Do Now question asking students about appropriate justifications for declaring war. A PowerPoint with images and brief notes guides students through the background to Pearl Harbor and US isolationism pre-WWII.

The class then listens to the actual audio recording of FDR's "Infamy Speech" to Congress asking them to declare war on Japan. Students complete an activity in which they are assigned a hypothetical American to read about, then complete questions about Pearl Harbor and US entrance to war from their character's perspective.

An optional activity is included at the end, in which students may compare President Bush's speech post-9/11 to President Roosevelt's Infamy Speech.
