Suggested Activities for Teaching about Japan.
Handley, Leslie
A collection of five activities for teaching about Japan at the elementary level is provided. An introductory activity is designed to elicit student perceptions of the Japanese through drawings and words. A second activity uses Japanese folk tales. The remaining three activities are presented by grade level (1-3) and provide strategies for incorporating the study of Japan into the expanding environments approach typical of most primary-grade social studies courses. The first-grade activity focuses on a comparison of self and family in Japan and the student's own society. The second-grade activity looks at neighborhoods, while the third-grade activity focuses on community. All activities contain objectives, a listing of materials, procedure, and student handouts. Additional sections of the document contain evaluation guidelines and a bibliography. (LP)
