Inquiry Into: How do Different Cultures Celebrate the New Years?

🎍The students are currently exploring how Japan celebrates the new year. Yesterday they played a Japanese game popular during New Year’s celebration called fukuwarai.

🙈 Players are led to a table which has a paper drawing of a human face with no features depicted, and cutouts of several facial features. While blindfolded, the players attempt to place the features onto the face in the correct positions.

👉Through this game we are learning to use positional words such as left, right, up, down and closer!
