Who were the Samurai?  What was their role in Japan?  What kinds of weapons and armor did they use?  These questions and many more will be answered as you work in small groups to complete this assignment.  Please keep an open mind as you learn about these warriors.

Step 1 - Before your group learns more about samurai, please go to the class stream and answer five questions from chapter 14 lesson 2 in your techbook.  I will need to conference with your group before you move past this step.

Step 2 - Take a short break and try these games.  What is your high score?

Step 3 - Use the documents above to complete the Google Form as a group.  Each member is responsible for 5 questions.  DO NOT submit your answers until the group has agreed on each answer.

Step 4 - You earned it!  Your group has been working so hard.  Try these video games.  My favorite is the sushi game!
