Social Studies: Bombing of Hiroshima

Students read a first person account of the bombing of Hiroshima written by a Japanese physician. By reading Michihiko Hachiya's journal, they discover the fatalities caused by the bomb itself and later by radiation poisoning. To conclude the lesson, students either create posters or write research papers about the effects of the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima.
