    After reading this story I had my kids make the origami paper cranes. They LOVED making them and sparked a new interest in some kids who needed a hobby.

    As far as background, I just told them a little about Pearl Harbor and our retaliation against the Japanese. They asked a lot of questions and I did my best to answer them. I showed them Japan on the map and had them make and color a map of Japan. I also emphasized "Peace Day" and we had our own Peace Day where we were only allowed to say NICE and positive things. I had to remind a few!----Then the regular comprehension questions.

    Hope this helps.
