Welcome to Earth
Have you seen this docuseries on Disney+? I just watched it and loved it. There are six episodes and I thought it would be a fun one to use as a class activity for those of you who have classrooms. My 11 yo enjoyed some of the episodes with me.
I’m thinking late elementary and middle school kids would be the best ages for this series.
I made a page for each episode with some related little drawings to color while you watch (for those of you who hear “color and watch” and your brain explodes a little, please keep an open mind because the neurodivergent among your students might love this option and it might help them pay attention!)
Each page has a related question you can use as a discussion question :D
