Product Description
Primary Source Reading on the Matthew Perry Expedition to Japan

This engaging primary source reading describes a colorful encounter between American sailors on the Matthew Perry expedition to Japan of 1852–1854 and a group of Japanese sumo wrestlers.

It includes a brief introduction and then the short excerpt reading followed by a 1 page set of reading analysis questions.

One of my goals each year is to increase my students' reading skills and comprehension. I found that using short (1 page or so) readings like this that are interesting for students while also highlighting historic events is an awesome way to improve their reading and understanding of the events.

An answer key is provided for your convenience.

Thanks so much for looking!
