Studying the Nation of Japan

Students in Jill Stevenson’s class at Miller Avenue Elementary School completed an in-depth research unit on Japan. As part of their studies about this fascinating country, the class created a detailed nonfiction A-to-Z picture book highlighting the interesting facts they had learned. The unit culminated in a range of activities, which included classmates sharing their important new knowledge with one another and reading Haiku poetry with their peers and family members. Some of the students even took the opportunity to dress in kimonos.
