Stepping-Stones: Teaching about Japan in Elementary Grades. Selected Lesson Plans from the "Japan Alumni."
Heinz, Elgin, Comp.
This document is a compilation of 30 lesson plans for teaching about Japan in elementary grades. Produced by "Japan Alumni," North American classroom teachers who became acquainted with Japanese society through a program of travel/study fellowships, the lessons are divided into the following categories: motivational activities, land and people, "hands-on" experiences, economic interdependence, culture and customs, perceptions of the past, and culminating activities. A sample of the 30 lessons include: obtaining a passport, charting the weather, what is culture? a workers' web, the shogun game, a historical time line, and twenty questions: a student-made list game. An appendix on the use of visual materials in the classroom and the creation of pictures is included. (DB)
