If your child is an auditory learner they will really enjoy the wealth of videos provided to teach students important facts. For example, did you know that just because deserts are dry doesn’t mean they are hot? The Gobi Desert in Central Asia is hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. There is also a cold desert known as Dry Valley that covers regions of Antartica where snow seldom falls. Very interesting, huh?

I love the convenience of Britannica Kids. We are a homeschool family that is always on the go. I have been known to do school work on the bleachers at sports practices, in the lobby of my family’s business, and in the car on trips! That is the beauty of this amazing online resource. If you have access to a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop you can explore the world!
