Geography, Music, Culture: Nat Geo Global Music

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

National Geographic has a great new music feature you’ll want to check out. This is a great way for families and just interested people in general to explore world music. Go to the link below and in the upper right you’ll see an a-z place to select genres. When you click  on one, it brings up a description of the musical tradition along with samples for easy listening. My computer didn’t seem to need any kind of plug in. So it should work fine.

Life Cycles

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Let’s learn about life cycles. How does a toad survive in the desert? Let’s find out.

Another animal lays eggs in sand, too-not in the desert, but on a beach. The mother animal weighs as much as a refrigerator full of food. Can you guess the animal?

Sea turtle mothers lay their eggs and leave them. The hatchlings must fend for themselves. But another kind of creature guards its eggs and the hatchlings.

Another has to begin the year by finding a home and building a colony.

 

And here is an animal family with a parent who takes protecting the young very seriously!
