World War II Analysis: The Bomb

World War II Analysis: The Bomb
Product Description
High quality DBQ activity!

Objective: Students will be able to write a historically defensible thesis statement using primary and secondary source documents of different perspectives on America’s decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II.

Focus Question: Did America do the right thing by dropping atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II?

This DBQ activity asks students to examine primary and secondary source documents of different perspectives on America’s decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II, form a human barometer to answer the focus question, listen to their peers' take on the issue and adjust their position accordingly, then write a historically defensible thesis statement answering the focus question.

Activity is easy-to-use and is great practice for students to methodically identify relevant evidence, sourcing information, point of view, and significance of historical documents.

Lesson could be extended into a DBQ essay! It also goes great with my FDR & the Holocaust Analysis, Japanese Internment Analysis, or save money and purchase my Bundle Package of all three!
