Hitler's Sunken Secret

Students discuss what heavy water is and why the Allied forces were afraid of the Axis stockpiling it. During the video, they complete a worksheet about the sinking of the "Hydro". After watching, they brainstorm a list of reasons supporting or disagreeing with the decision to sink the ferry with civilians onboard. To end the lesson, they discuss the issues surrounding ethics and making decisions.

Lesson Planet is a phenomenal resource for finding new ideas and lessons for the classroom. What makes Lesson Planet so unique is that many of the lessons found are complete with worksheets, detailed instructions, and they are aligned to content standards. It is the only lesson resource that I gladly pay for, and it is worth every penny!
