Do the Map Work:

1.  Hideyoshi wanted to conquer China.  He took his army into Korea, hoping                                the Koreans would move toward China.  Draw an arrow from the coast of Japan                                 to the coast of Korea.

2.  The Chinese helped the Koreans push back the Japanese.  Color China                           orange,            then draw two orange arrows from China, down through Korea.

3.  After Hideyoshi died, two armies fought for control of Japan.  Color the

territory of Ieyasu’s Eastern Territory red (right hand, half of the main island of                             Japan).  Color the territory of Hideyori’s Western army yellow.

Wednesday:   Color the painting “The Peasant Dance”.  Students may choose their own colors or look on the Internet to see how to color the painting based on the original.

Today in class, students took notes about the artist, Bruegel.  Using these notes,  write a narration about Pieter Bruegel. Students also looked at a copy of the painting, “The Country Wedding”.  Your student may have written a short (and separate) narration of their impressions of the painting. This narration (if given) should be typed or written on a separate sheet of paper. Students should show their work to a parent for a final edit before they type or re-write.  If the narration is typed, please set your left and right margins at 1.5 inches (a font size of 16 or 18 is recommended).  If a student chooses to hand write the narration, using lined paper is recommended.
