Japanese Writing

Melisa Cadell worked as a sub for two days at Bowman Middle School while students were studying the Japanese Internment camps in the US. Melisa taught them about Japanese culture – with a particular emphasis on learning about Kanji (Chinese calligraphy which was adopted in Japan around 400 AD). Students learned to write 20 Japanese words and also practiced Sumi-e painting to create an accordian book.
