WAR LORDS OF JAPANStudents role-play six powerful samurai clans of the late 1500s


A Simulation of the Shogun History of Feudal Japan

Representing the six powerful samurai clans of the late 1500s, students compete for the title of Shogun in this challenging simulation. Student armies amass stores of rice and conquer other provinces by completing a variety of activities, including writing, accounting, calligraphy, and art assignments. Success requires strategic thought, careful planning, and also luck, as fate cards present unexpected events. The simulation contains 35 eight-page student booklets and a 72-page teacher's guide which includes setup directions, daily lesson plans, reproducible background essays and short tests, and a map of Japan. The entire simulation runs for ten class periods, but may be shortened. Grades 4–8. Interact.
