Where in the world?

Have a look in your cupboards and see if you can explore where your food was grown or traditionally from? Eg, coffee grown in Brazil. Using Google Earth or a world map, can you find the country and label?

Can you explore what the weather is like there? What language they speak? what continent it is in? You may like to watch an episode of Go Jetters or research on the internet.

Virtual Safari

See the link below for a safari around a South African game reserve watching animals in the wild. The live stream is from 8-11am and 5.30-8.30pm each day. South Africa is an hour ahead of us so the evening drive will probably be in the dark which can show how different animals interact at different times. There is commentary from the driver so you can learn some interesting facts about the animals they find. The streams are also saved on their Youtube page to access at any time of the day.
