This is a great Common Core lesson that has students investigate what it takes to be a samurai warrior. The lesson comes with a printable reading, annotation lesson and samurai want ad worksheet.
Students read a Samurai Training reading from an 18th century text, annotate key points and create a want ad as if he/she is a daimyo landowner searching for a mounted warrior to protect his/her land. The want ad reinforces samurai characteristics they have read about.
All difficult vocabulary is defined right in the text!
