The boys like looking at the interactive weather map on the computer. Ever since I showed them where a thunderstorm was, they found the weather map to be fun to look at…also to make sure no thunderstorms are nearby. I switched the view to satellite view so they can see how the earth really looks like and not like a flat drawing of roads and other lines. Cameron was definitely interested. Here’s the convo…
Me: There are no storms nearby us.
Cameron (pointing to some dark green areas): What’s that?
Me: those are mountains.
*I zoom out so he can see how many mountains are on the US continent
Me: Here are the mountains that are near us and these are the Rocky Mountains. See how many mountains we have?
Cameron: We live on a very bumpy planet.
