5 cool documentaries for kids about the planet
Great documentaries educate us and sometimes even inspire us to take action. Here are five docs for your little eco-warriors:
1. Arctic Tale (2007)
This National Geographic film follows a polar bear cub and a walrus pup as they grow into powerful adults, all the while showing the audience how tough things are in the Arctic now that the ice is melting. You had us at polar bear cub. But seriously, the idea that the Arctic home of all these amazing animals is in trouble is very scary. Think of the polar bears and walruses that could be saved if kids today grow up to be better caretakers of the planet than we are?
2. Earth (2009)
