Learn the National Anthems!


In honor of the Rugby World Cup, New Zealand 2011 has created  a program called “Learn the Anthems”.   The site lists 20 countries competing in the games along with their flags, map, country information and a recording of their national anthem.   What a great idea to help kids learn about foreign countries and cultures.  Pick a team, learn their anthem and sing along with them.  You can even go a step further in making flags, banners and signs in the native language.  I’m sure after seeing the videos my boys will be most interested in painting their faces like the kids pictured here.  Thank you to Global Kids Oz for sharing another global idea with us.


About the cultured kid

I've traveled, lived, worked and studied all over the world. Europe, North Africa, Central & South America, the Middle East and Asia. The more different the culture, the better! I'm determined to introduce my two boys to our multi-cultural world. Living in Washington, D.C. there are international festivals, parades and cultures right in our own backyard. I'll share with you our adventures around town and those that take us on international journeys. I'll also share ideas for introducing your family to foreign food, culture and community at home.
