The samurai era is divided into three historical periods which each have unique characteristics. After students read about the features of each historical period (also known as a shogunate), they'll complete a project to show off what they learned. They can choose to create journal entries, a scrapbook, song lyrics or a skit.
The resource includes an introduction, an explanation of at least 5 - 10 characteristics of each historical period, directions for the four projects and a rubric.
