Remembering Pearl Harbor

With today's advanced technology, it's virtually possible to experience Pearl Harbor. Remembering Pearl Harbor by Time transports viewers back to that important historical day of December 7, 1941. 

Another way to experience Pearl Harbor is through the U.S. Navy Museum's Pearl Harbor Virtual Tour. Students can gain background knowledge by watching a video of the history of the battle, as well as tour memorials. 

With today's technology, it is possible to visit Pearl Harbor from your classroom or from home. Virtual reality tours can help students better understand Pearl Harbor and its historical event. 

Also, remember to thank a veteran for their services to our nation and freedom on Pearl Harbor Day. 

Afterwards, take time to complete Pearl Harbor activity handouts below:
