Nine months ago I posted a blog which was the translation of a page of a Japanese text book (here and here). Mary Whitehouse saw it and introduced me to Shinjiro Ogawa – a Japanese science teacher on secondment to Italy. We met at the ASE conference. Shinjiro introduced me to several Japanese colleagues, all of who are working on fascinating projects.
Shinjiro has been very generous sharing Japanese resources – here is a year 6 activity on electromagnets (from: http://happylilac.net ‘Chibi-Musu-Drill’)
You could use Google Translate and a bit of editing to read this, but I’ve done the first page for you (see below)
I hope you enjoy it!
