We leave for Spring Break in London tomorrow, and so to help the kids understand what we're about to experience, I wanted to devote this morning to learning all about London's history. I tried reading up online on a children's history of London, but man! I'm not sure if you've heard this but London is REALLY REALLY OLD. There's a LOT of history there.
We ended up watching some videos about the City of London (which is distinctly different than London), like this one:
My wife Chay has also been including London Fun Facts in her daily lunch notes the past week or so, so between those factoids and the video factoids we had enough for a quick quiz.
Zephyr got that there's two cities in London (City of London and City of Westminster) , both got that London is in England and England is part of the UK, and Zephyr got that the name of the bell in the London clock tower is Big Ben. Lyric thought it was Big Bob, but CLOSE ENOUGH!
For Prizes I gave them some fresh Pokémon luggage tags! Now we're traveling in style!
I expect blogging opportunities to be slim while I'm in London, but follow me on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates. Zephyr and Lyric on Carnaby Street promises to be high style indeed.
