What’s Included with the Complete Set of National Geographic Magazines
In this complete set of National Geographic Magazines you’ll get 7 DVD-ROMs including 1,400 issues, 8,000 articles, 200,000 photographs, and hundreds of digitized classic maps exactly as they appeared in print. These are not compatible with a DVD movie player. They need to be played in a computer.
In addition to the magazines you’ll have Geobrowsing capabilities so you can look up info about any specific place. You can also test your knowledge with trivia questions (so not my forte).
My history-loving husband saw this deal and has already asked for a set. The articles and photos would be really cool to look at with our kids, but I think the advertisements would be fascinating too. I’m not a homeschooling parent, but wonder if these would be useful for those who do school at home?
Speaking of National Geographic, here’s my best related story: before I moved to the Peruvian Amazon I checked out every available National Geographic magazine with any Amazon-related stories in it. As I read one article, my eyes saw a full page photo of a hairy spider. My eyes told my mind, “SPIDER!” and in a knee jerk reaction I screamed and threw the magazine off my lap on to the floor. Courageous is my middle name :) Am I the only one with a noteworthy National Geographic story?
Which history buff in your life would like these?
