Memorial Day Extra Credit Assignment

Each question is worth 2 points. Will be added to last week's test on Modular 4, Lessons 1 to 11.

Lesson Details:

In this lesson, students use an Internet-based tool (provided) or graphing software to create graphs showing our nation's "history of sacrifice." The graphs serve as visual reminders of those who fought for our country so we might enjoy the freedom we have today, and of the reasons we pause each year on Memorial Day to remember those who gave their lives.

Use the website: https://www.infoplease.com/us/american-wars/americas-wars-us-casualties-and-veterans to view America’s Wars: U.S. Casualties and Veterans. Look over the notes and talk to your friends and family about the number of conflicts from the American Revolution to Operation Iraqi Freedom. In how many of those conflicts have more than 10,000 American lives been sacrificed? In how many of those conflicts have more than 100,000 American lives been lost? Students will use that website to answer the questions that are posted on Microsoft teams. The questions are below:

  1. How many Americans were killed in the Vietnam War?
  2. Were more American lives sacrificed in the Civil War or in World War II?
  3. In which war did almost 117,000 Americans lose their lives?
  4. How many more lives were lost in the Vietnam War than were lost in the Korean War?
  5. In how many wars on the chart did 100,000 or more Americans die?
