We are watching Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman take a motorcycle journey all the way down through Africa, 10,000 plus miles in their series called The Long Way Down. Max occasionally joins us for an episode, but be warned, there is some stronger language and adult-isms scattered throughout the episodes. It is a brilliant journey in that Charley and Ewan are learning about the people of Africa, their ways of daily life, their customs and rituals. This is the part that I am most curious about and I find myself wanting to know more. Right now (with respect to the episode we'll watch next) they are heading into Rwanda. I am enjoying this nightly ritual and love it when we find a series we can watch, especially when we find one we can all watch together comfortably as a family. Learning together! That's a big part of homeschooling.
This game would serve to help satiate some of the curiosity one might feel about how people of other countries live:
