Our Week Ahead ~ Monday 27th July 2015

We're looking forward to starting our, high school years, unit on Australia & New Zealand; and, as in previous years, we'll stay longer on this geographical area in history than any other we're reading about this year.  We've intentionally cut a whole heap of U.S and Asian history reading from Biblioplan so that we can focus on other portions of history that we want to immerse ourselves in more.
