Use the Densho Project website to learn about realpeople who lived in internment camps, and then create baseball cards to tell their stories. Part of an OurStory module entitled Life in a WWII Japanese American Internment Camp, this activity includes instructions, discussion prompts, links, and background information. OurStory is designed to help children and adults explore history together through the use of children's literature, museum collections, and hands-on activities.
