project example( Grade 8)

A Japanese exchange student provided the enthusiasm needed for our Japanese tour on the Internet. Several great sites were found by the students who enjoyed the photo's of this wonderful culture.

After our Japanese exchange student left, our students were asked to present what they had learned in their own way. They could choose any area and any format.

It was thrilling to see the variation after one week. Some chose the written format and presented it like the sample on the left. Others organized a short drama they had written and spoke Japanese, wearing kimonos.

One group wearing Japanese costumes decided on a cooking lesson, preparing traditional Japanese food in class. Unfortunately we were not able to cook the food but the preparation was a treat to watch. The students took the prepared dish home and cooked it there.
