I'm looking for some media ideas to get the kids excited and ready for our upcoming trip to South Africa in July. We'll be visiting Cape Town, going on safari, and spending 22 days in a new and beautiful land and I want to heighten their anticipation (and mine) as much as possible.
I usually like to show movies or have them read books that in someway relate to upcoming trips, but I'm stumped with this one. My kids are ages 8, 10, and 12, having just completed 2nd, 5th, and 6th grades. The oldest can almost read adult novels, but the younger two need children's books still (albeit chapter books). Are there any children's TV shows based in South Africa we might be able to find? Or kids' movies?
Any ideas you might have are appreciated!
