Product Description

Students read an account of the Trinity Test from the Manhattan Project, a Japanese account of the atomic bomb being dropped on Hiroshima, answer 18 questions, and complete a creative task. This can work for US or World History. The answers are included where appropriate and would be great for a sub! ***Updated to include a description and 6 student samples of an alternate point of view/summary activity.***

Sample questions include:

--Why were there trepidations in the days leading up to the test detonation?

--Why do you think Groves and Farrell had the "rule" about not being together where there was danger?

--Identify and explain 2 examples of the "awful potentialities" Farrell could have been referring to.

-- In what ways do you think this bomb could have been used for good, per the second to last paragraph of the first account?

--How does an event like this affect people differently? Why do some rise to whatever challenge needs to be met or goal accomplished and why do others succumb to fear and confusion?

--Could the scientists have predicted the actual, real life effect of the blast on civilians, why or why not? If yes, why did they move forward with the Manhattan Project?
