(Story of the World, Volume 2, Chapter 9)
Iwakura Onsen-kyo hot spring resort is the origin of a myth of Yamato Takeru (a legendary Japanese prince of the Yamato dynasty).Day 1
We listened to the audio book selection. We wrote the narrations in our notebooks and added these to our timeline:
300 Yamato Dynasty in Japan
300 Beginning of the Three Kingdoms period in Korea
We used the Chapter 9 lapbook elements and pasted them, along with our activity book map into our notebook. We also read An Illustrated History of Japan.
We watched The Legend of Amaterasu and Paekche Kingdom. We then wrote "I love you" in Japanese.
We read The Crane Wife and then had a Japanese bento dinner. Our recipes included:
green tea (can you tell I love Japanese food?) We also talked about the Japanese tea ceremony and watched this great video about it.
We listened to the audio book again and read our notes from our notebook. We also had fun making Origami.
