Ancient China - Oracle Bones

We are taking a break from our normal history program to dig a bit deeper in studying China. It seemed like a good time to do it and also good for Master J to have some understanding of China before our trip this summer.

We tried to make something like oracle bones to write on.

The instructions were to use starch, paint it on a brown bag, draw on it with a black crayon, and paint it with brown paint to give it an old look. I used cornstarch and it just crumbled as we tried to write on it. Yes, he is in his pj's doing school. Most kids got a snow day today but we still did some school.

Next we are going to study the Great Wall. I am ready - I have my pictures from our visit to the Great Wall.
