Learning at dinner time

My eight-year-old son wants to know about the creation of everything, so I’m searching the web to find cool videos to share with him. He usually spends a lot of time in his own video games, he also has swimming classes, and spends time doing homework. And last, but not least, he has seven hours of school. How am I supposed to help him with his curiosity?

Last night it occurred to me that we could see the short video that I had found about the Big Bang Theory (see previous blog post) while we were having dinner. As I usually say that the kids should not use their electronic devises while at the table, they might have been curious about what was going on, because I played the video in my laptop. I also told my son that he was not supposed to understand everything the first time, since it was a lot of information. They were both enthusiastic about it (maybe because it was something new).

We watched the video (I had watched it first, so I knew it was good), and no one said anything. I had no idea if they had liked it or not. But then, when I was tucking my son in his bed, I asked him if he wanted to see more videos like the one we had just seen, and he said a very enthusiastic, no-doubt-he-liked-it, ‘yes!’

So today I found this video, which is very cool for either a kid, or a grown up. What excites me the most is, however, that I found it in a page that I didn’t know that existed, Ted-Ed, which is related to the talks that I love. I predict more entertaining dinner moments for us. Let’s see how it goes today.
