What we're curious about
Second grade’s curriculum includes the study of Japan. In previous years, we had our Japan NightPresentation where students showcased their knowledge of the unit to their families. Our last Japan Night, in 2019, was assembled as an interactive museum with children presenting to families on different topics. Unfortunately, this year we could not have a live presentation. Instead, we adjusted to the circumstances and found a way to bring the children’s vibrant enthusiasm and knowledge to our families via a virtual Japan Week Presentation.
Like the watercolor artist Kango Takamura, students created their own artistic interpretations of life in the internment camps. It could be a watercolor but it does not have to be. They could use pencil, charcoal, or some other medium to create this interpretation.
