Celebrate Children: A Study of Japanese Children's Festivals

Introduce Japanese culture through an exploration of 2 children's holidays. Young learners anticipate symbols for the holidays after looking at children's books' illustrations. They make a traditional carp kite and read a Carp for Kimiko to make connections to American holidays. Next, the class decorates the room with carp kites and dolls. Additionally, they watch a video on Japanese children's festivals, and brainstorm a new holiday for America.
