Winning War Lords

We ended our War Lords of Japan simulation on Wednesday with some real intense battles between teams. Winning student teams worked very hard to achieve the role of Shogun, often by taking work home for the night to earn them extra moves. I was also very impressed with students who knew the facts on their background essays. They were tough to beat because they learned their Japanese history and were ready for face-offs with opposing teams. I am so proud of everyone, and have to say this year's simulation was one of the best. (See pictures of the winning teams at the end of this blog.)

This coming week students will have a unit test over China and Japan on Tuesday and then we will start into our final unit for the year. We will finish the sixth grade year by studying Latin American geography and learning the history of the Mayas, Aztecs, and Incas.

Below are pictures of students who won the War Lords of Japan simulation.
