After Italy, we picked India as our country. We read about the history of India. Then, we started completing some fact sheets that I created. We completed them together. As for someone famous from India, Kabir picked Mahatma Gandhi. So, we saw the movie and then he wrote a short summary on Mahatma Gandhi by himself. He picked Taj Mahal to study for the landmark from India. We read about it and then he wrote a short summary. Then he drew Taj Mahal and painted it with paste of Indian spices. We also made a flag of India with pizza and with Lego.

We added India to both the population chart and the religion graph.
When we were done, we visited India so it was a hands-on experience. After coming back, I showed him how to use powerpoint and told him that he will have to use PowerPoint slides to do his presentation. He was ecstatic! He would get up early in the morning or sleep much later than usual, as he wanted to keep working on his presentation for India. He made all the slides by himself. You are most welcome to download and look at his PowerPoint presentation on India, if you are interested.
We celebrated the culmination of study on India with a party where he dressed up in Kurta Pyjama and gave the presentation. Amit gave him a pointer and it was the best thing that happened for him because he had so much fun presenting and using the pointer to point at everything he was talking about.
Kabir Presenting India
We had Indian dinner: biryani, raita, seek kabab and paw bhaji. Sam Crabb presented Greenland so confidently and beautifully. We had the most delicious dessert, Berry Crisp from Greenland. It was just delicious!!!
Then Amit stamped Kabir’s pretend passport with India flag and signed and dated it for him. Now, we are off to Australia!
If you feel upto it, you are most welcome to watch his presentation videos. We took this video before the day of India party because during the party, it is hard to take a video with our little one wanting to look at it at the same time.
