This lesson will help students identify with the experiences of camp internees during World War II. Students will be divided into four-member "family" groups that are to be relocated to an internment camp. They will then read two sections of the online exhibition entitled A More Perfect Union and, based on what they have read, make decisions about what they will take with them. After discussing their decisions, students will visit the "Reflections" section of A More Perfect Union and write a response to at least one of the topics.
