Japanese Internment During World War II

Students identify, describe and discuss the reasons why Japanese-Americans were placed in internment camps and what life was like at these camps. Then they write an unsent letter to a family member on the East Coast describing their life in the internment camp. Finally, students respond to whether the US was or was not justified in enacting a policy of interning Japanese-American during WWII.
