Passport to Japan & its Culture

Passport to Japan & its Culture

Ideally suited to students from Yr 3 upwards, this Multiple Intelligences assignment requires students to complete 8 of 16 tasks over a 10 week term. Teachers will need to download the assignment and print double sided, then fold in half. Select coloured card/heavier paper for the students to create their "passport" - extending them by using kana. Staple in the centre. As each task is completed, a sticker is placed on that page. Suitable Japanese icons/pictures are readily available on the web if the accompanying worksheet of stickers doesn't suit. Some students will seek to do more than the 8 tasks and I would suggest that this be counted as extension work. A marking sheet is also included.
