SOTW2: Ch 21 & 22

Chapter 21: Mongols Devastate the East. The two big topics for this chapter are Genghis Khan and Kublai Khan. It’s interesting that I had no trouble finding age appropriate books about these two men than I had finding books about Richard the Lionheart (for the 2nd grade set).

*We read the (final) section of this book, which is about the Mongols.

Chapter 22: Exploring the Mysterious East…i.e…Marco Polo and the Forbidden City. I broke this chapter into three sections: Marco Polo, other explorers, and the Forbidden City.
