Lesson 19

Sushi anyone? Rice? Today we tackled chopsticks and, while we were somewhat successful, most agreed that we would be really hungry at the end of a meal if we had to rely on chopsticks as our sole utensil!  I appreciate students trying new things as we barely skim the surface to learn about Asian cultures.

Students completed the first country quiz for Asia (10 countries); 10 more added for next week.  We also discussed the preliminary travel plans for the Asian travel adventure.  I look forward to seeing more plans in place next week!

Finally we tackled world maps and an Asian crossword puzzle.

Homework:

1.  New countries to learn for next week (in addition to the countries from last week - so 20 total for the quiz on 2/3/2020)  Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia.

2.  Continue working on Asian Travel project.  Items due on 2/3/2020 are noted on the worksheet.  Remind students to begin gathering photos for their final project.

3.  Complete Asian crossword puzzle.  Submit in class next week.

Attachments:  Crossword Puzzle.
