Chapter 32 deals with China: the First Emperor, the Great Wall of China, pictograms, calligraphy, and the burial chamber filled with clay warriors and horses. My son had a lot of fun listening to the stories. I thought it was a long chapter, but he was not bored at all. I mentioned there is yet one more story in the chapter and he said, “Keep going! Read it!”
To make the cast, we used super glue and craft sticks, as directed in the activity book.
We had lots of fun, although I did get some super glue on my fingers. Two days later, I am still dealing with it. The duct tape left some residue, too. I just could not figure out how to use super glue to connect the four sides. So I opted for duct tape instead.
I psyched myself up before the project that “we will get dirty” so I would not freak out with all the dirt. Sure enough, after he built it, he started throwing dirt all over himself. I am ashamed to say that I started freaking out, but then I remembered he can take a shower… and he did.
