Pearl Harbor


Published on

This is a presentation that I completed for EDU 290 in the Fall of 2009. The intent of this assignment was to create a lesson that could be used by a student that missed the classroom instruction due to illness.

  3. 3. Hawaii Pearl Harbor View from an attacking U.S.S Missouri Japanese aircraft (now a museum ship)
  4. 4. Many Different Reasons • President Roosevelt had banned all exports of scrap iron, steel and oil to Japan. • The United States wanted Japan to withdraw from Indo-China which they had invaded earlier. • The US opposed Japanese expansion. • The Japanese were motivated to expand their empire and had to make a decision between surrendering or going to war with the United States.
  5. 5. • Pearl Harbor was the home of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. Japan did not want the U.S. in the war because the U.S at this time had the greatest Naval force. They thought that if the Pacific Fleet was destroyed, Americans would feel demoralized and not want to fight. They made a big mistake when they thought that this might be a reason to attack America!
