We spent the rest of the week chugging away on what was happening in the rest of the world about the time the Black Plague was decimating Europe.

We visited the Western African Kingdoms .....  specifically Ghana

Looked at India under the Mogul Empire.  Ate some Indian Dal (lentil/rice dish that tastes better than it looks)

And now as we continue on closer to the Renaissance we are enthralled with this book:

  2. Hi April - we primarily use Tapestry of Grace with a selective sprinkling of Story of the World thrown in for some of the hands-on activities.
