This presentation was inspired by the book What Do You Celebrate: Holidays and Festivals Around the World by Whitney Stewart! The author teaches about different holidays from different countries. It's a great book to add to your classroom if you want to add some diversity.
This powerpoint presentation is 25 pages and contains links to informational videos and a link to a Japanese song, poems for your students to analyze, and informational slides about the festival itself and how we came to celebrate it in our country!
This presentation is interactive and first teaches your students a few Japanese words and then quizzes them to see what they remember. At the end of the presentation, your students will answer comprehension questions. They can find out if they have the correct answer by moving the "Secret" box out of the way and uncovering the answer.
