This is an old Japanese fairy tale translated into English in 1902 (therefore it is in the public domain). It has a set of reading comprehension questions along with accompanying Social Studies and Language Arts materials for both lower and higher elementary grades. It includes the Japanese fairy tale called "The Woman Who Lost Her Dumpling" which was translated into English by Lafcadio Hearn, the life of the translator, character analysis, creative writing for higher grades (re-telling the story from different perspectives), a creative writing assignment for lower grades (writing an original recipe for dumplings), creative writing prompts, topics for group discussion, a Social Studies set that covers the geography and history of Japan, the culture, food, economy and fast facts. There is a 2- page Social Studies test that follows, as well.
The fairy tale is about a woman who loses a dumpling down a hole and as she tries to retrieve it, she falls into the hole too, and finds herself in a strange country.
The pictures are in colour but can be printed in black and white by hitting the print button, going to the down arrow under "colour", and choosing a gray scale.
