This week for school we traveled to China. The boys really enjoyed this week. We hit several different topics this week pertaining to the interesting China ethnics. Very different from our culture the boys discovered.
First, we found China on the big wall map of the world. We each had our own map of China. We labeled the capital, the Yangtze River, and The Great Wall of China. They also colored the China flag.
We also studied Pandas. We read about pandas in Magnificent Mammals and The Zoo Guide. In addition, we looked at several videos of Pandas on Youtube. The boys all did a notebook page. Doobie completed the page on Pandas in DWN #7 . It was really fun to watch the little ones dance to Kung Fu Fighting. The younger boys want a panda now instead of goats. LOL!
We read about Hudson Taylor in Heaven Heroes. Each child completed a notebook page and placed under their history pipeline.
We read on the net about the history of the Great Wall of China. We enjoyed watching videos on this magnificent structure here. My ds4 was intrigued and built the Great Wall of China with his cardboard blocks.
The older boys chose to make an origami from the book, Geography Through Art. While the younger ones made a dragon mask.
We ended the week of by watching Mulan.
This coming week we will learning about South Korea. Hopefully they will be as entertained as their journey to China entailed.
