Civilian Internment in Crystal City, Texas (7th grade)


During World War II, thousands of American citizens of Japanese, German, and Italian descent were forcibly relocated into internment camps. Using the government film Alien Enemy Detention Facility, Crystal City, Texas, this lesson plan explores the internment of American citizens and the use of propaganda during World War II. It correlates with TEKS curriculum objectives in Social Studies for grades 7 and 8.
