With Earth Day almost upon us, Disneynature has released it’s latest nature documentary, BEARS. Big Brother and I had a fabulous at the last release, Chimpanzee, and were definitely looking forward to BEARS. As a former biology teacher, I LOVE the Disneynature films. The cinematography is always stunning. Plus, I love how the films are both educational AND fun! Additionally, Disneynature provides a whole bunch of fun printable activities and an entire educational guide!Here are a handful of fun/educational activities that you can download (right click) & print:
- BEARS printable mask
- BEARS paw comparison activity
- BEARS word search
- BEARS Adaptations Game and adaptations cards
But there are SO many more activities! In fact, Disneynature has put together a whole FREE educator’s guide! <— Click that link to download nearly 100 pages of standards-aligned lessons and resources geared toward grades 2-6. In addition to all the great educational components to the Disneynature films is the conservation efforts that go with each film. At the Disney Social Media Moms conference, we got to hear about some of those efforts and the successes of the past Disneynature theatrical films. BEARS was filmed in the gorgeous Alaska wilderness. So, Disneynature (via the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund) has partnered with the National Parks Foundation. A portion of ticket sales from April 18-24 will go to the National Park Foundation, in addition to a portion of some BEARS products sold. So, you can go see a fun & educational movie with absolutely breathtaking scenery & support a great foundation at the same time! A win-win!
