Weekly Wrap Up (Gandhi's India & Pakistani Independence) - December 18

This week we spent learning more about Modern India.


Our readings sparked a very good conversation regarding Margaret Sanger (Planned Parenthood), Hitler, Gandhi and their belief on population growth/suppression.

In addition to studies, we are also gearing up for the Christmas Season.  My daughter had her ballet recital and attended an American Girl party where she got to dress up as Kirsten celebrating St. Lucia Day.
