It's spring, the time of year for rebirth, so let's all get in the spirit of spring!
This year in Geography class I have been taking my children around the globe. Each week we visit a new country and learn all the wonderful things that is unique and wonderful to its location. We have been all over Asia, Africa, North America and South America. Even off to Europe we have been. I love that I can incorporate some videos in our daily lessons because listening to me speak all day can bore my children at times(sad, but true).
I can ready books to my children and show them lovely photos of locations in specific countries, but I do believe that a video of specific locations in countries is much more appealing to my little ones. Beautiful Planet DVDs assists this homeschool mom in teaching her children about parts of this world that we would otherwise not get to see.
While studying North America in Geography and our own nation's history, I was able to show my children selections from the DVD, Medal of Honor, which details stories from our nations war heros. Another wonderful teaching DVD that I have been utilizing is, Up From Slavery. Whilst studying Europe South America and Africa, my children are learning where these nations population originates from. During these discussion I have been introducing the topic of slavery. We have discussed this as well in our own nations struggle during the Civil War specifically against slavery. Up From Slavery is a fantastic DVD for educational purposes and one we will be for many years to come.
