Due to school closures, an increasing number of parents around the United States have found themselves homeschooling for the time being. Even though school districts are offering a variety of e-learning opportunities, finding educational resources online is more important than ever.
Disney has recently provided parents with new DisneyNature education packs that are designed to teach kids from about 7-12 years of age about some of the amazing animals in the world! On Friday, April 3, DisneyNature Penguins and DisneyNature Dolphin Reef both arrived on Disney+.
There are multi-page Disney activity booklets that coordinate with each wildlife documentary. Both the DisneyNature Penguins educational book and the DisneyNature Dolphin Reef educational book feature articles about the animals’ habitats, fun facts about other wildlife that live with penguins and dolphins, and beautiful photos!
Each Disney PDF booklet can be downloaded and printed for free. These Disney education resources are a great addition to your home education curriculum. Whether you add an animal documentary into your routine once a week or you spread a single documentary out over the course of a week, DisneyNature on Disney+ is an excellent way to keep kids engaged.
In addition to Penguins and Dolphin Reef, Disney+ has a large library of other DisneyNature and National Geographic documentary films and docuseries that are appropriate for elementary children and teenagers.
DisneyNature Crimson Wing is a beautifully done flamingo documentary and National Geographic’s Unlikely Animal Friends series will teach little ones (and adults, too!) about unlikely animal duos who have found a way to defy nature and forge close bonds.
We know it can be tough to get things done with children running around all day, so take advantage of this guilt-free screen time! For more Disney education, check out Khan Academy’s “Imagineering in a Box” and “Pixar in a Box” courses!
