I can’t express to you how wonderful it has been to switch our history/literature curriculum to Tapestry of Grace this year, and to be a part of our Tapestry of Grace Fellowship Group!  We have just completed our 2nd unit celebration of the year.  We did one last fall which was focused on The Roaring Twenties.  This time we expanded even more with the time period being the 1930s – 1960s in 6 different countries that we have recently studied: Israel, India, China, Cuba, Germany, and the southern U.S.

Everyone was encouraged to dress from one of the countries and/or the time period. My family was dressed from the 1950s. I made poodle skirts for myself and 3 of my girls. My oldest daughter wanted a car-hop costume, so I made one for her. It was easy for the boys–jeans and a t-shirt, and we got (borrowed) a couple of black leather jackets.  So fun!

The high schoolers acted out a scene they wrote based on “To Kill a Mockingbird.”  We had folk singing, Cuban cha-cha dancing, Cuban drum music, a presentation about missionary work in India, recitation of the Hebrew alphabet, and a presentation about Deitrich Bonhoeffer.

During dinner, a slideshow was playing on the big screen and CDs of each country’s music was playing over the sound system.
