Classes are intense, excitement in evident, and students are having fun battling for control of Japan. We are in the middle of the history simulation entitled War Lords of Japan. This simulation is a great way to learn the history of this island country. Students read background essays everyday and then takes quizzes as teams to earn armies they place on the board. We are having loads of fun in the classroom and energy levels are high. Thursday of this week will be the last day of the simulation, and then on Friday students will take a short quiz over Japan.
Below are pictures of students working in their teams during class.
