What Hiroshima/Nagasaki mean today after 75 years.
Based on picture books such as “Machinto”, "My Hiroshima", and "Watashi no Yamete!", participants learn about what the dropping of Nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki brought us today. Students do research, listen to the voices of survivors, and invite other students to learn, so that people never forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki and never repeat this evil tragedy in the future.
1. What do you know about Hiroshima/Nagasaki (H/N)?
How do you know it?
2. Research for yourself to learn more about it.
What did you learn and what were your sources for what you learned?
(Space for resources contributed by students based on survivors' voices, Youtube videos, books, visits to Peace Museums, etc. )
3. Invite your friends and keep telling them what you know about H/N to make Machinto friends in the world.
4. Make Machinto partners with other countries and deepen your thoughts. These Machinto Chains will link to next generations to remember H/N forever.
5. A student-authored or class-authored book "Voices for Peace" including students' own voices.
We expect students to count Machinto friends in the world with their effort to keep telling about H/N, and their creative "Voices for Peace" books.
Students will learn what wars bring us, and discuss what we can do together for this little Machinto bird.
Never Hiroshima/Nagasaki again! Reduction of Nuclear bombs in the world.
