Story of the World, Vol. 4, Chapter 19 covers the last emperor of China and the Vietnamese Restoration Society. We read it without any incidents, though we also listened to it in the car over the summer.
I purchased the audiobook for volume 4 because I had a sneaky feeling we would not be finishing it over the summer break. As the new year has started, this will come in handy. If we do not get to history one week, I can always take the audiobook along one of our longer car rides and catch up on assignments.
We still have to work on our maps and crafts when we get back home, but at least we take care of the reading part in the car. Gotta love car schooling!
For our craft, I did not feel like pulling out all stops as suggested in the Vietnamese water puppetry activity. I just printed out the Chinese Mandarin squares and they colored away.
