Topic – Atomic Bomb Grade Level – 7th Apps Used – NYS Standards Addressed – SS 2,3,5 General Lesson Objective/Procedure – The students were instructed to watch the videos that were loaded onto the iPods from the USHMM site referenced above. The basis of this project was for the students to investigate the causes of WW2 and the lead up to the dropping of the A-bomb. The students were then to decide whether or not it was a good decision to drop the bomb and tell of an alternative to doing so. Their answers had to be based in fact and their story told through the use of comic touch lite. General Anecdotes – the hindrance to this lesson was printing the final projects. However as the teacher was watching the line of students grow when students were to do a final print a very interesting conclusion was reached. The students were bringing their iTouches up with them to wait in line and were able to work while they were waiting. It truly brought out the 1-1 aspect of the project as well as the ability to work at all times and have an increased time on task. Also, for this lesson there was no prior teaching, it was strictly project based and the students learned a great deal.
