Really, Big Field Trip

Thanks to Andrew Duggan we can pass on that both this Saturday morning and next WHYY will run a 9 a.m. special on Turkey. Billed as "Exploring Turkey's history, geography, language and art, from the perspectives of young American tourists," it should be a great follow up on the 2008 Global Outreach conference. As Andrew, who entered the kid's art contest, noted, "Mom, can I watch that on Saturday? It would be good to learn some more about the country I made the art for."

A local Lancaster couple produced that show and it's really great for elementary kids!

here is a link where you can learn more about the show and the folks who produced it.

Looks like a great website in general with lots of cross cultural learning possibilities to explore. The homeschooler and anthropologist in me is excited.

We watched the show this morning and we all liked it. I think it is on again next week if you missed it today!. Very good especially for a 1/2 show. One of the better jobs I have seen done for kids that actually kept my kids attention while not bugging as an anthroplogist or boring me as an adult! I hope they are doing more on other countries!

I had to read this post several times before I understood that we were talking about the COUNTRY Turkey, *not* the food! NOW it makes sense! I thought it odd to have a program dedicated to the history of a Thanksgiving dish!
