Watching this video took me back ten years to when I lived in Japan with my family. We visited this Ninja Museum http://www.iganinja.jp/?page_id=837 My sons loved dressing up as ninjas and throwing shuriken.
I wish Ninja would have existed back then!
Activity Name: Ninja Star Origami
Activity Description: Give each student two pieces of origami paper along with the activity sheets below so that they can create their own shuriken. Hint: This activity is best done at the end of the day so that the ninja stars can quickly be sent home.
Whether it be for one specific student, a small group of kids, or a whole class, finding a "just right" book makes the teacher's and the students' day.
