Japanese Folk Song
Kodomo no Hi is Children's Day in Japan. Bring this celebration into your music classroom with this student article on the May 5 event and the song “Koinobori.” This authentic Japanese folk song is about carp (koi) and how these beloved fish symbolize the parents' hope for their children to be successful. A terrific lesson that comes with lots of extension ideas!
