The Blue Planet

We queued The Blue Planet series from Netflix and are just finishing up the disc entitled Seas of Life: Open Ocean/The Deep. So far we are really enjoying this series. It does contain some evolutionary language, but is for the most part simply stunning cinematography, wonderful explanation and a collection of really wild underwater creatures. The page I linked to has info and activities on the left. I have not used them since I just saw them for the first time, lol. In any case, I can certainly recommend this series for families interested in learning more about the life in the world's oceans!

Oooooohhhhhh....we LOVED Blue Planet. I could watch that a hundred times and still be fascinated.

I think the most amazing part is that towards the end that they admit that only something like 1% of earths oceans have been explored. Kind of mind-blowing!

And my understanding from the special features is that this series has film that is basically one of a kind--it really is amazing what is down there, and we have remained clueless throughout history.
