Pack your bags—at least in your imaginations!—because this week, we’re headed to India to learn more about this amazing country. From the animals and architecture to the language and cuisine, your child will be immersed in Indian culture and gain a hands-on understanding of what life is like there (and how it might not be so different from your own!).
Get ready to explore India with all your senses, from the smells and tastes to the beautiful music and architecture. (Plus, plenty of native Indian animals!)
For our final week, we’ll meet some India natives, from a famous mathmetician to some of the animals who call this country home. We’ll also work on autobiographies, practice some natural dyeing techniques, and end the week with a sweet local favorite.
This week, we will learn more about the different religions practiced in India. This unit also includes several writing options (including research, copywork, and storytelling), but don’t feel the need to do them all—try different methods with your child and see what they enjoy best.
This week, we will examine how the India we know today was largely influenced by the people who inhabited the land over 2,000 years ago. We will examine their beliefs and their food, and, throughout the week, we will make connections to science and math.
Long before the country of India existed as we know it today, there was the Indus Valley. This week, we’ll explore the brilliant inventions, delicious flavors, and ingenious business practices of this ancient culture—and see how these customs still influence our lives today.
