Recently I was interviewed by Mom’s Homeroom about how to incorporate culture and teach geography at home, and my kids got to “play” in the video. A team came into our house and asked us lots of questions, recorded mini-interviews with the kids, and we showed them some of our favorite activities to learn geography at home. The kids *loved* talking with the cameramen, playing with the lights and microphones, and thinking that we were famous.
In the video, they featured the very popular “My Place in the World” project, as a great way to begin an easy lesson of geography at home.
They also filmed another mini-video about incorporating culture into adoptive families, that will be published in October. My kids had so much fun doing it, and they did an excellent job editing out the pure chaos happening during the shoot:). Here are some pictures of our fun day:
It was such an incredible experience! One funny thing that happened- my kids couldn’t stop playing with the camera guy on the far left (extremely tall). My little Ricky asked him “How did you get SO TALL!?” To which he responded: “I drink a lot of milk.” To this day Ricky remembers this and asks for milk every day:).
