When Japanese Americans were ordered to move to internment camps during World War II, they were forced to sell most of their possessions and take only what they could carry. This lesson, from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, will help students identify with the experiences of camp internees during World War II. Students will be divided into four-member family groups that are to be relocated to an internment camp. They will then read two sections of the A More Perfect Union online exhibition and, based on what they have read, make decisions about what they will take with them. After discussing their decisions, students will visit the Reflections section of the A More Perfect Union Web site and write a response to at least one of the topics. This lesson is included in the online exhibition entitled A More Perfect Union, which focuses on the experiences of Japanese Americans who were placed in internment camps during World War II.
