7a) Kevin Lee's Atomic Bomb Study Guide: 
This summarizes some of the big opinions regarding use of the Atomic Bomb.


The links below will help students out side of class with their research, development and learning of regarding some of the atomic bomb details. Good essays will make use of the information found at these and other sites. However, be sure to check your sources and information. Try to make sure your information is accurate. If you check 10 sources and 8 sources say the bombing of Hiroshima was on August 6, 1945 and 2 sources say August 5, 1945. Then you can deduce that the bombing was on August 6, 1945. Yet, if you check 1 source and it says August 5, 1945 and you put that in your essay you are NOT going to get a good score. Get the picture? Be sure to check your facts thoroughly for the best accuracy.
