This resource has two different activities for your students to learn about Japanese military actions in Nanking, China during WW2. The first activity has a one page reading passage with 4 questions followed by a 20 question webquest. The second file has 20 questions to accompany the book The Rape of Nanking (text from the book not included for copyright reasons). The questions are divided by Introduction, Chapter 1, Chapter 4, etc. All answers are included where appropriate. This is appropriate for US and World History.
Please be aware that one paragraph in the reading passage DOES describe some of the torture methods the Japanese used and it DOES touch on rape, as this event can not be respectfully discussed without acknowledging the realities of this tragedy for all parties involved.
