Kids will love discovering this island nation in the Pacific as they try out a variety of learning experiences. Kids will explore Japan and its traditions through cultural activities like creating a fish windsock, or making a family crest. They’ll learn about haiku, set up their own doll festival, or draw Japanese symbols. But the highlight of this study is the Cultural Gathering! Kids will love planning for the Japanese Tanabata Festival, and trying out Japanese dishes like kid-style sushi or mochi cake!

Notebooking Focus:
All along the way, students will complete an open and go travel diary. The diary includes more content about Japan, drawings and interactive fun, cut-outs, native costume designs, and so much more that will help the learning really stick! It’s a great journey, and packed with family fun!

This study includes most of the reading you need for the study, an activity resource, a profile on a Japanese child, a guide for planning the Cultural Gathering, the Travel Diary pages, and more! It is planned around a four-day week, to make it super easy to fit into a busy family’s schedule.
