After completing research about Japanese samurai, students complete this fun project. For this project, students take on the role of a Japanese scribe that has been recently assigned to create a Help Wanted Ad to find qualified people to become samurai. The product includes a brief introduction explaining the activity, a list and explanation of requirements and a rubric. This activity really helps history come alive for students! It also helps students develop the skill of using historical evidence in their writing, along with incorporating their creative touches.
