Japanese Culture Day

March 22 was Japanese Culture Day! We had the opportunity to enjoy origami folding, top competitions, dress up, special assemblies, a potluck lunch, and aikido. Grade 3 even created some art to contribute to the celebratory day!

Thank you to the Japanese Department for organizing such a fantastic day.

Enduring Understanding: Inventions are continually change the world.

Essential Questions:

Why do people create new inventions?

How have inventions impacted the world?
