We watch Cyber Chase

25 Jan

We don’t watch much TV at our house; most of what is on the boob-tube is total crap and we’ve just got so many other interesting things to do.

That being said, there are a few shows that we do watch.

Pumpkin (5) loves Cyber Chase. For those not in the know, Cyber Chase is a children’s show on PBS. What I love about it is that it introduces basic math and science concepts in a way that kids can understand. We’ve used it to help reinforce things we are working on at home.

They have covered everything from graphs, fractions, measurements, perimeter and area, gears, geometry, and much more. It really is great.

While Hacker (played by Christoper Lloyd) runs around creating havoc in the computer world, four kids along with a robot bird (played by Gilbert Gottfried) try to figure out how to save the day.

And they even end the day with a “For Real” segment that humorously portray how to use the same knowledge in everyday life.
