About this time last month, I came out with my first ebook, Book Traveler: China. With my desire to make this a series, I’m so happy to introduce my second ebook, Book Traveler: Japan! I also have plans for other ones in the near future.
What is Book Traveler: China about?
Book Traveler: Japan is an ebook devoted to the study of our world, for children in grades K – 4th. They will learn hands-on about the history and culture of the Japanese people, the geography of Japan, read about the animals that are native to the country, and much more!
My desire for this ebook series, is to have your children explore the world around them by just books and activities, making it fun and exciting to learn about.
If you are a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, this would be the perfect study for Japan, because it has many of its methods. If you are not a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, don’t worry! This ebook is perfect for all school types, methods, and is great for students of all learning styles.
What will your children learn?
- Books & Narrations
I have selected three books that you and your children will read that is based in Japan. In each book, your child will see some of ancient Japan’s culture, while listening to a story that will keep your child’s attention. For older children, you can even have them write a narration, after each book is finished. If your child has never written a narration before, don’t worry, I have an outline with prompts.
- Copywork & Dictations
I have taken copywork selections from the books that I have selected for this study. Each of the copywork pages have been made to be used for children of all writing stages, in both manuscript and cursive. The dictation selections are longer and more advanced for older children.
There are some words that your child may not understand, so I have taken a handful of them and created vocabulary work.
How can you study China, or any other country, without having some geography work? I have created some coloring pages for your children and written some fun facts that I’m sure they will want to share with their friends!
Study two Japanese animals and native plants with your children, with further reading, and video selections. After the study, there is a nature study sheet that they can fill out, with all the information they have learned, over the period of time they have learned.
- History & Landmarks
Japan is infamous for their Samurai Warriors. I have pulled together some fun and insightful resources for you and your child to study.
For older students, I have created 10 math word problems, and similar to the copywork and dictation selections, I have them based on the three books I have selected for this study.
- Games & Activities
What fun is learning if you can’t enjoy what you are doing? This section of the ebook is full of fun activities and games that you and your children can do together to implement what you are studying about Japan.
- Art & Music
For further study, you and your child can study the many painting and Japanese songs I have collected. This will add to the study of Japanese culture, by seeing the clothing they wore, the activities they did, and instruments they used.
What you need to know
I have set this ebook up to use three books:
To use this ebook to its absolute fullest, I highly suggest you purchase, or borrow these books from local library branches, as you go through this study. It will add so much to what your child will learn!
