This was very easy to add into my Google Classroom for my students. This powerpoint was very helpful when we were studying Japan in arts. This power point was extremely helpful!

This resource was the basis for my larger presentation. This resource was a blessing because it cut down on my research time and design time. I didn’t make use of the entire resource, but I took only the relevant parts and made my own presentation. It was a great experience for my students and they were very engaged. It was a pleasure to teach. We are grateful!
