For this lesson, students will learn more about the events leading up to World War II and Japan’s reasons for attacking Pearl Harbor. Then, using Google Expeditions, students will take a virtual trip around Hawaii and see some of the military sites that made Hawaii such an important place during World War II.

Students will utilize ​Google My Maps, Google Slides, Google Search, YouTube and Google Expeditions for research, analysis, collaboration, presentation, and mapping of historical sites.
