Activity Overview


After learning about the Vietnam War, its varied and controversial causes, as well as the many important and tragic events that occurred, students will create a storyboard that explains the aftermath of the war. What was it like in Vietnam after the Fall of Saigon? What was the toll on the Vietnamese people? On the American soldiers? On their families and on the home front? Students can display their findings in a spider map or a chart that highlights important facts, figures, or quotes along with meaningful illustrations to demonstrate their understanding and explain the end of the decades long conflict in Vietnam. Teachers may also ask students to include a cell that analyzes how public sentiment changed in the aftermath and through to present day.
