This Week's Video Roundup

Gemma asks a lot of questions, and my usual response is, "Let's look it up."

In the past week, she's wanted to know why are some fruits berries and some are not, how the anti-slip letters on the bottom of children's socks work, and what's the name of that song playing on the radio? 

Let's look it up.

Did you know that the fruits we call berries are NOT berries?! Or that a cucumber IS a berry?! For more berry interesting facts, watch this:

  1. Thank you. Loved the berry informational video. I tutor 12 to 15 year old kids and most of them are bored and look down on education except when their teachers know how to add joy and humour to their lessons, like he does.
