Geography Lessons






I'm totally loving the video explanations of C.G.P. Grey on various things.  Here are a few of my favorites:



The difference between Holland and the Netherlands.  (Hint, Holland is a part of the Netherlands.)

The United Kingdom and a Whole Lot More, which explains what part is England, what part is Great Britain, and then the UK.

I also liked the explanation of the True Cost of the British Royal Family, which actually turns a profit for the nation.

Interesting! You might like to know about GeoToys, which is a company run by our friend and neighbor. It's a line of geography-themed puzzles and games.

Plus, cute models in their videos... http://www.geotoystore.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=162:geopuzzles&catid=47
