Learning geography is sometimes difficult, but doing so sets a solid foundation on which to build an education rich with history, international relations, religious understanding, cultural empathy and philosophy. This seems to be National Geographic's motivation in their effort rebuilding National Geographic Education to create a wonderful resource for not only teachers and educators, but for students and parents as well. The site is still a beta version, but it's definitely worth a peak.
When my three year old sits down at the TV to watch 'Curious George', 'Super Why!' or any other show that is part of PBS's fantastic lineup of PBS Kids programming, I can tell he is mentally engaged. He enjoys the programming, and absorbs the messages of learn, read, discover, create, and explore. I really don't think that he cares if Curious George is Republican or Democrat. To be honest, I don't think he cares that George is a monkey!
Yesterday, Joey Ciaramitaro from Good Morning Gloucester called to discuss things to do during February Vacation with kids. He wanted to do an impromptu 15 minute interview, but it turned into a 40 minute interview that covered a broad range of subjects from places to go hiking around or near Cape Ann, our upcoming Summer Camp Guide, to the Google Science Fair.
