Passport to Japan: Konnichiwa

Passport to Japan: Konnichiwa

PASSPORT TO JAPAN--KONNICHIWA is the only passport you'll need to take students on a trip to modern day Japan. Follow a Japanese student through a school day and then go home for a look at family life. Compare and contrast America's community, government, history and traditions with those of Japan. PASSPORT TO JAPAN is an integrated, cross-curricular approach to teaching western children about the children of contemporary Japan.
