Consequences of Nuclear War

By: Maria Andleeb

During the final stage of World War II, United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The devastating effects of the only use of nuclear weapons killed 90,000-146000 people in Hiroshima and 39,000-80,000 people in Nagasaki.

To mark the event a video was shown to grade VI students in a multimedia session that provided the insight where they got to know the repercussions and negative impact of nuclear war that included loss of human lives, economic losses, spread of diseases, and displacement of people among others.

Summing up, the activity presentation was well received by the students. The information shared in the session laid out a wealth of knowledge and a better understanding of the topic.
