Wood, Robert W.; And Others
This activities unit for teaching about Japan is designed for use with elementary students. The activities reflect the growing importance of Japan in today's world, and the belief that the social studies curriculum should reflect principles of global education. The unit is intended to explore seven major goals included in the social studies curriculum: citizenship, multi-ethnicity, economic understanding, effective decision making, sensitivity to time and space, examination and use of information, and analysis and adaptation to a changing world. The activities focus on four major areas: geography, government, culture, and education. The activities are designed for grade levels one through six; they may be adapted to meet other grade level requirements, however. Each activity includes a title, introduction, objectives, grade level, time, materials, procedure, follow-up, evaluation, and further suggestions. A 36-item list of references is included. (DB)
