Next Tuesday, I’ll be spending the day with my niece’s 5th grade class. I’ll be teaching them about all sorts of Japanese things. Today I drew up really brief lesson plans for each of the classes so her teachers know what to expect.
In Science we’ll talk about how digital cameras work (after discussing Japan’s famous technology companies); Math is an abacus lesson; Reading is Japanese folktales; Spelling is writing names in katakana. In Social Studies, we’ll try rice crackers and green tea and in English we’ll decode some Japanese English words (Do you think anyone will get pasocon? I threw it in for a challenge!)
It will be a fun, but very tiring day.
Excuse me, I have to go prepare some katakana handoutsPosted by kuri at January 16, 2003 10:54 PM
