Kids Web Japan is one of the most valuable sites I have ever found to use technology and teach second to fourth grade students about Japan. This site is a wealth of information for young students! I have created a comprehensive Japanese unit, integrated with Technology, Language Arts, Social Studies, and Art. I have recommended books that teachers can read to students to accompany different aspects of the Japanese culture. This unit
lends itself to reading, comprehension, critical thinking, and writing. With a click of a link, students will be well on their way to learning about many aspects of the Japanese culture that meet the Common Core Standards and the 21st century Learning Expectations.
