As a family, we found we were doing quite a bit of traveling. Alex has a passport with stamps from at least 5 different countries and has visited many more via closed loop cruising (where passports are not needed). He has been on 6 cruises ranging from 7-12 day trips each. Some of his favorite places in DisneyWorld in Orlando, Disneyland in California, and Disneyland in Paris (maybe you have noticed a trend – haha!)
On a recent trip to Hawaii, mom realized that there are so many kids out there who don’t get an opportunity to travel like Alex. As a former teacher, she also knows learning about interesting things outside of our regular environment can broaden the mind inviting students to think bigger.
Unfortunately this idea was hatched while on a 24-hour travel day back home AFTER the trip was over so we missed out on some amazing places and facts to share. The good news is that the idea was hatched and that gives us even more of a reason to travel. ;)
Thanks for stopping by and Alex looks forward to sharing some fun facts along the way!
Our vision is for science and social studies videos between 3-5 minutes that teachers can use as morning or pack up work. Alex is just starting to learn about video presence, enunciation, and the facts he will be sharing on the fly. They will get even better with time. Eventually we will even ask for "guest vloggers" from K-5 students so that we are able to include even more cool facts from all over the world! www.FunFactswithAlex.com
Stop by and check out the beginnings of what we hope to be a great resource for teachers everywhere!
