Japan and Korea Week

Our next week in our Around the World Homeschool Curriculum was Japan and Korea (we kind of lumped North and South Korea) 


My Japan


Mazes from Around the World Mazes


Since we eat sushi (well, not the kids) and hibachi, we decided to try some Korean foods this week. We LOVE Thai dumplings, so gave Korean Dumplings a shot. We ended up really liking them, but slightly preferring our Thai recipe. We also tried Bibimbap. Everyone in the family really liked it. It may have to stay in our regular recipe book, although it does kind of take a lot of prep.

Read Aloud:

I did not have a great country-related read aloud for this week. We took the opportunity to try something totally different and read The Chocolate Touch. It stressed Archer out just a little, but I think he did like it overall. Maybe not one he will reread on his own, though...


Our original plan was to do some Japanese style art printing. This ended up in Styrofoam all over the house and no actual prints, so we had to come up with a plan B. Enter, broccoli Japanese Cherry Blossoms!
Archer painted the tree outline with brown first. When it was dry he dipped some broccoli into pink paint to make the cherry blossoms. The paint was slightly shimmery and I think it turned out great!
