This collection asks students to create their own exhibit on a controversial subject: the use of atomic weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War II. Students will create a collection that includes five items reflecting their answers to the following questions:

-How should the bombing of Hiroshima be remembered?

-Was it necessary to drop the atomic bombs in order to end World War II?

Students should consider both long-term and short-term effects in their responses.
