Students in 5W read a wonderful illustrated book together in class, “An Illustrated History of Japan” – By Shigeo Nishimura, that describes Japan’s history with significant facts from the Ice Ages to modern day. We modeled how to take notes and each 5W student was allocated 3~5 pages. S/he was responsible for taking notes from those pages and sharing them. Then, mostly in groups, the students wrote up a section of Japan’s history and finally copied and pasted their group’s essay together. Please see the task template HERE
Below in the comments section you will be able to find your child’s final shared report. I am sure you will learn something about Japan that you did not know already. I did.
5W students – let’s add our reports (Bitly link please) to the comment box below on Monday 15th. Please share with your parents. Thank you.
