This post, Keeping Up with Current Events, North Korea, South Korea and Japan, was written for Sonlight Curriculum

In this edition of your guided tour through History / Bible / Literature F, we canter through North Korea, South Korea, and Japan. Our top travel tip this edition features the elements of a Current Events study.

Travel to China from the Comfort of Your Couch

This post, Travel to China from the Comfort of Your Couch, was written for Sonlight Curriculum.

Snuggling up on the couch while reading and discussing literature is a great way to build family bonds, so with Sonlight, most of your History, Bible, and Literature are couch subjects. These subjects are easy to combine because they are stories, and children love stories. 

So, let's cuddle up because the stories we will read on the first stop of our all-inclusive Eastern Hemisphere trip will bring China's history, culture, and people alive and will help us understand the impact China has on our world.
