Description:

What would it have felt like to be forced to move into an internment camp during World War II? This lesson, from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, will help students become aware of, and sensitive to, the Japanese American internment camp experience. By creating a list of things that are important and familiar to them and then choosing what they will take and leave behind, students will develop a sense of empathy by simulating situations which Japanese American children faced. 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.
