Japanese Imperialism in WWII

Last week, in keeping with our study on WWII, students had the opportunity to learn about Japanese Imperialism from guest speaker, Garry Bush! Students used latitude and longitude to graph places on the Pacific, researched who was in control of those countries, and what resources they produced. Along with information about Japanese culture and nationalism, students used this information to explore why Japan needed to expand in the Pacific, and why it was important for them to win World War II. This further developed their understanding of the different players in WWII, their motivations, and the underlying motives for their interactions with other countries.

Thank you for visiting, Garry!
