June10_TSAnna was begging me to get Top Secret Adventures China kit advertised in The Highlights magazine. Top Secret Adventures are recommended for age 7+. but they are just right now for Anna now as tasks are designed for fluent readers with good comprehension, don’t require a lot of writing and most pages can be completed under 15 minutes. I also used this opportunity to get back to our country studies. Since I had time, I designed sort of a mini unit on China – “bucket list” style. Every day she is pulling one or two activities from the bucket and we are doing these activities. Here is what I have planned for China:June27_Fireworks
Of course no unit from me would be complete without books, and there are so many wonderful and thought-provoking books about China! Here are some that we already read or will be reading for this unit:

I like the "bucket" list for the study - it adds a nice element of pick-and-choose, while leaving more to look forward to.

This sounds like a very fun unit. I can't wait to see it unfold. Don't forget to link them up to the Meme. :)

great list of things to do--we're going to try a few out! We watched some Chinese dance on YouTube and the girls loved it. Also, I think they'd love Panda Kindergarten--thanks for sharing this with me!
