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.
