Learning about China (in English) & ... about cars

For quite some time now, Jas wanted to learn something about cars and I wanted to do a lapbook with him. After some searching on the Internet, I finally found a template for a wonderful lapbook suitable for Jas' age.
Today he started working on this project. Here is what he has done so far:

You can see the complete lapbook HERE.

Zosia has started working (or should I write - playing) with "Ancient China Treasure Box".


This week I started reading to the kids a book about a Scottish athlete and missionary to China, Eric Liddell.

There was a great movie made based on the story of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams, who participated in the 1923 Summer Olympics - "Chariots of Fire". The movie won 4 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Original Musical Score (by Vangelis).
