We have spent the last week learning all about Japan! We began our lesson by coloring the Japanese flag and exploring the meaning behind it. We learned that the red circle in the middle of the flag represents the sun. We also located Japan on the map and found out it is made up of thousands of islands. The four main islands of Japan are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku.
We explored its unique culture by learning about their various crafts, foods, mannerisms, and sports. We took some time to learn about origamis and make our own origami! We are continuing our exploration of Japan this week. Stay tuned for more!
