It's been difficult to tie this all together. In a sense, we're still looking at Imperialism and colonization. Japan takes over Manchuria and China.
We're still looking at a loss of land - the Israelis, the Palestinians, the Chinese.
We watched a two minute clip today:
I can't imagine losing my home, my land, my culture like this. Like any of this. (Israeli, Palestinian, Chinese...)
We also discussed what happened between WWI and WWII and why we were fighting with the Japanese and then against them.
If you want credit for reading and discussing the blog, discuss the following questions:
Why did Japan invade Manchuria? Why is the land situation in Israel so complicated? (Think about today's bellwork.) And if you remember, why did we fight with the Japanese, and then against them?
Then, write the following on a piece of paper: "Manchuria" and have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign the paper.
