Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "Reliving the Attack on Pearl Harbor" by Veterans History Project.

In "Reliving the Attack on Pearl Harbor", J.C. Alton shares his experiences serving in the army and the events of the attack on Pearl Harbor as he remembers them.

As we read, we will be discussing the theme of War & Peace as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :

"How are we changed by war?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this interview at home:
    • What was "Reliving the Attack on Pearl Harbor" about?
    • What did you learn about War & Peace?
  • Watch Attack on Pearl Harbor – History at home with your child.
