This is a discussion about the Japanese Yokai (traditional monsters), that have haunted the nation for centuries. 

The class will focus around the tengu (long-nosed devil), oni (red faced devil) and kappa (the frog man). 

I will talk about my visit to the Takao Mountain (where the tengu and oni have been "spotted").

I will also talk about my experiences at Osore-zan (a spiritual mountain in Japan) if I have time.

Tengu Mask Pictures

Berlin Wall

Posted by admin

Divide the class into two teams. Use the analogy of East and West Berlin. When the wall came down in Berlin, they did not know the people they were looking at. Have the two teachers hold up "the wall". When they bring it down, the first team to come up with the name of a person they are looking at gets a point. This is a good opportunity to talk about the Berlin Wall on a basic level.

sheet or blanket
