On Monday, December 7, the JCC has arranged for a visit from Japan in a Suitcase for all JIP classes.
Japan-in-a-Suitcase is a program sponsored by the Japan-America Society of Washington DC that reaches out to schools in the greater DC metro. Through the use of some hands-on activities, crafts and colorful PowerPoint presentations, students can learn about Japanese culture and language. Japan-in-a Suitcase works to encourage a deeper understanding and awareness of Japan and Japanese culture to school children through hands-on activities and demonstrations. They bring bits of Japan — traditional toys, clothing, school items and crafts — to the classroom in an exciting suitcase.
