“A DAY WHICH WILL LIVE IN INFAMY”

These were the words of President Roosevelt in his speech after the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. The surprise attack was horrifying and devastating to the entire US. For the next two weeks we will read about the awful consequences suffered by innocent Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. On Monday, December 2, students will learn about the attack on Pearl Harbor using a web quest. The treatment of Japanese Americans in the aftermath of the attack can perhaps be understood, but never condoned. Learning about this awful mistake will hopefully keep us from ever allowing it to happen again.

Lesson Four: Wampanoag Ways 

Students will read the Life as a Wampanoag interview and answer the multiple-choice and short-answer questions in First Thanksgiving Questions for Grades 6-8 (the questions are also featured below).

 

Select all that apply. At one point in his interview, Fast Turtle says, “Life was good before the English came.” This statement most likely refers to the idea that Wampanoag:

[   ] were living alone before the English came [   ] had to give up their lands and religion [   ] were afraid of the Pilgrims [   ] didn’t have as much food [   ] came down with diseases from the Pilgrims [   ] were forced to learn English

 

The Pilgrims were grateful to the Native Americans for showing them survival skills, but they also had several other feelings toward them. What were these feelings? Use at least two details from the interviews to support your answer.
