How are you teach about culture at home? A couple of months ago I was interviewed by MSN’s “Mom’s Homeroom” about incorporating geography lessons into our daily lives, and also teaching about culture at home. You can see the first video on teaching geography at home, plus silly pictures of the taping here. In the second video (click on the picture below) I give tips on how we integrate our children’s heritages and birth cultures into our family life.
You might notice me glaring over the camera at my 4 kids, who were precariously close to knocking over the lights while I was being interviewed:)- fortunately nothing was broken and they had a fun time playing with the microphones!
