Animal x Education program @ Sus juku


Feb-Dec 2012

I designed an educational program for a juku in Japan called Sus Juku.

:

I have designed 8 scenes that represent Japan's nature in four seasons (2 each in each season), which students are guided to make using illustrations and folding origami. Each scene has a theme that the teacher talks about, such as biodiversity, relationship between human and nature, adaptation etc. In the program students learn about each theme with the Powerpoint slides with relevant pictures and movies, then move on to the hands-on activity of drawing, folding and glueing to make the scene.
