Homeschooling Update: China

We are are almost finished with our China study.

So far we have read many books on China.
Read about Missionaries that have lived in China.

We watched an animated movie about Gladys Aylward. It is from the Torchlighters heroes of the Faith series. (I was very impressed with it.) I learned alot, and it was a much better way to convey her story to children than just reading about it in a book.

I am so blessed that my library actually had this dvd available.
In fact they have the whole series available.
Also after you watch the video, you can go to the website for a short quiz, puzzle activity,
coloring pages, and some have related crafts.

We also watched the video about Eric Liddell from the same Heroes of the Faith Series.

We read a book about life in Tibet.

Today we read a story called "The Story of Paper" and we are recycling paper from scraps.
You can see our process here.

We also did some mini books for our lapbook as we learned about things in China.
