Although there are tons of choices that will make the kiddies laugh and have fun, I think it’s really important to expose them to movies and shows that they may not choose for themselves. For example, there are so many science titles on Netflix that are a great way to entertain and educate at the same time.
Most of the time when I make a suggestion for movie night that isn’t the typical animated family flick, I usually get the groans from both of the lovely people to whom I gave life. And then they watch and almost always, enjoy my suggestion, because I am always right. Ahem.
Want to get your kids science-inspired this month?? Here are some great titles to check out for your older kids (mine are 8 and 11 and enjoyed these as well).
PBS offers great science titles that are informative and interesting but also understandable. Hunting the Elements and Deadliest Volcanoes are only two of many highly rated ones to check out.
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey is 13 episodes about the nature of time and space, based on the original series. It is incredible and beautiful and an absolute must-see.
TedTalks: Let Your Mind Wonder are a fun series of 16 short videos that answer some important questions like Should we eat bugs? and Why is yawning contagious? These are answers we all need, no??
These are just four titles to check out but you can find so many great science themed titles including those from PBS and TedTalks. Have fun getting your science on!!
