This three page worksheet is designed to helps students build a strong understanding of Japan in context as they study the Shogun period.
The front two page is an easy to read informative text about the Samurai, the Bushido code and the Gusoku. This activity includes 3 excerpts from the Bushido code, and two images of armour from the Shogun period. There are five questions to help students use these primary sources to enhance their understanding and empathy for the samurai.
The second activity is a diagram of the Gusoku, the Samurai armour, and a set of terms and definitions. Students will correctly label the diagram using these terms.
