Not every resident of the country has the opportunity to independently go on a trip. National Geographic Day is dedicated to the creators of the famous magazine who found a way to take readers on a virtual adventure. They collected the most interesting materials from all over the world to make the work richer and more truthful.
In 1888, a magazine called National Geographic appeared. It came out every month and quickly established itself as a reliable source of information. Small informative texts and bright photos in a convenient format attracted more and more potential buyers. They got to know the world by traveling virtually to different continents and getting to know their inhabitants.
Many nonfiction publications preferred to avoid wars and politics, but not National Geographic. Journalists allowed to face the truth. They studied different aspects of life in the United States of America, trying to show how the level differs in other states. Particular attention was paid to environmental issues. They were brought to public attention. The magazine was also highly rated due to the high quality of the images and the beautiful design, reminiscent of a book.
- Purchasing original magazines has only become more difficult over the years. In the 1990s, electronic versions of all issues were created.
- In adolescence, children tend to hate learning in all its manifestations, but the creators of magazines were able to find an approach to them too. While reading, you can learn a lot of new things, start dreaming about travel and draw conclusions about life in other countries.
- Work on each graduation was carried out for exactly a month. It required huge energy and material costs.
How to celebrate
If now there is no opportunity to independently explore the world in the footsteps of the creators of the magazine, then you can take up its study.
