Growing Up Wild

From the website:
 "Growing Up Wild  is a 15 episode DVD set. There are 5 DVD volumes with 3 episodes on each one. Each individual episode is approximately 15 minutes long, and focuses on one aspect in the lives of the Wild brothers - missionaries in Papua, Indonesia. At the end of each episode is an activities section which gives your children corresponding educational activities that will cause them to work, think, and explore. 

The "Growing Up Wild" DVD series was developed for the purpose of introducing children to the work going on in foreign mission field. Our hope is that "Growing Up Wild" will educate and challenge your children, and be used by the Lord to play a part in raising up the next generation of missionaries!"

Cost - $18.99 per volume

The Bentz Test Laboratory loved this resource!  They say they are appropriate for ages 5-12, but I couldn't stop watching them, it's appropriate for all ages.

We were blessed with Volume 1 & Volume 4 ; each with 3 episodes - Home Sweet Hut, Supply Trip,Sun & Water, Amazing World Around Us, Adventures in Culture, and Tribal Calling.  We were entralled with the glimpse into the Wild family.  Their home (and what a view!), how they live and interact with the jungle and the culture!
The Activity Guide included a Bible study and devotional thoughts along with suggested activites to add to the learning.  Hands on like building your own Wano hut, Science - researching solar cells,  and Math - creating your own supply list from a weekly menu, and a Culture Comparision worksheet to name a few.
We enjoyed each episode, my testers wanted to watch them back-to-back and were begging for more!  I have a feeling the other Volumes would make a great stocking stuffer.

The Wild family will inspire you to follow God wherever he may call you - there's an adventure waiting!  
Use these DVD's  while studying geography, worldview, or just for your own enjoyment.  A great resource for your Sunday School or Co-op Classes as well.

  1. Hi,

    Do you do Homeschool MATH curriculum reviews?

    Our MATH curriculum is a computer based curriculum which is self-paced with lessons and interactive review with automatic re-teaching using audio, computer animated visuals and text. It is really designed to retain student’s attention with ample opportunity to practice problem solving with step-by-step instructions when needed.

    Also, we are running a HUGE Holiday Giveaway where we are donating $6,250 worth of MATH Curriculum to Homeschooling Families.

    Feel free to share with other homeschooling families: HUGE Holiday Giveaway! Donation of MATH Curriculum to 50 Homeschooling Families (Over $6,250 worth of MATH Curriculum). YOU can nominate as many families as you like. You can even nominate yourself if you can’t find someone else to nominate you. Visit:

    I think this would be REALLY GREAT for the homeschooling families you serve as well as for your website/blog.

    Thanks and Regards,
