Tapestry of Grace Week 19

We really enjoyed our first week of Tapestry of Grace. So far, so good.

We studied Manjiro,

the opening of Japan by Commodore Perry,

and President Millard Fillmore.

We also covered the Opium Wars in China as well as the Taiping Rebellion. Whew! That's a lot covered in one week, but it really didn't seem like too much.

Ruth learned a bit about Chinese brush painting from this book. She made this picture of a dog from the instructions.

We will be adding writing back in next week, so hopefully we'll have some notebook pages to share then.

How exciting! I'm glad you are liking TOG. Isn't it fun to do something different? Hope you have a great week-end, and post updates on how the TOG is going, and how much teacher-prep is involved.
