One of the best parts of this show, though, is the ability to get some geography lessons in while watching a show we enjoy. As we watch we like to find the countries they visit on a map. This year I'm even having the boys map the route as they travel from country to country. Then, as they watch the show they are able to see some of the culture of the country. This gives us a great geography lesson that doesn't even seem like learning to the kids.

Do YOU watch the amazing race? Are there any fun shows on TV that you use for educational purposes (non-educational shows)?
