We were reviewing for a unit test today in my Sophomore Modern European History class...we've been studying World War II. We briefly touched on Pearl Harbor as it is a European History class, yet that is what brough USA into WWII.
While reviewing we were discussing vocabulary words...one of them being ATOMIC BOMB!!!! The point was for them to understand we used the ABOMB, where it was used (what people) and so on and so forth!
I had one student insist and I mean INSIST that one of the A-BOMBS was dropped on Pearl Harbor. We discussed it for 2-3 minutes; however, I think he still walked out of class today convinced that I was incorrect and that he was right...an ATOMIC BOMB was dropped on Pearl Harbor.
Hmmm....do you think he will get that question right on the final tomorrow?
PS...the two atomic bombs were dropped by the US in Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki to be exact...just in case you forgot!)
