This pack contains Bloom's Taxonomy activities about Japan. The activities involve topics about geography and demographic of Japan, festivals and public holidays, food, culture, Japanese literature and writing system and war history.
Using Blooms Taxonomy Framework, this resource will enable you to use it as a tool for higher order thinking. For best results, it should be used in conjunction to your own unit explored in the classroom. This can alternatively be used in classes that teach Japanese, as a way for students to understand more about the country, its history, traditions and culture.
A Create Task asks students to design a mascot for a Japanese public holiday. Here, students will need to understand the significance of the holiday and what traditions and activities take place on the day. They will need to pay close attention to the animal/ symbol they have chosen so that it correlates to the holiday. Students will also need to provide a written explanation to justify the colour choice and overall design. It may seem like a simple task, but if the students were to create something of relevance it would require them to have established a good understanding and respect for the public holiday and make specific choices.
This framework can be used as an independent task or a homework extension for students that need an extra challenge. It allows you to date when they have completed a task so you can keep track of their progress. In the classroom, I like them to finish at least 3 activities before advancing to the next skill set.
As a heads up, some of these activities will prove to be of more value when completed together as a whole class, and therefore you may want to select those activities and use them as class competitions or whole class learning experiences.
