Earlier this week a film by DisneyNature called Wings of Life was released. I haven’t seen the film yet but I’m looking forward to it. I’m a butterfly lover. Someone special to me (I won’t mention names) nicknamed me “My Precious Butterfly” (long story).
Here is a brief synopsis about the film.
From Disneynature, the studio that brought you Earth, Oceans, African Cats and Chimpanzee, comes Wings of Life — a stunning adventure full of intrigue, drama and mesmerizing beauty. Narrated by Meryl Streep, this intimate and unprecedented look at butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, bats and flowers is a celebration of life, as a third of the world’s food supply depends on these incredible — and increasingly threatened — creatures.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg, Wings of Life utilizes riveting high-speed, time lapse and macro filmmaking to showcase in spectacular detail these unsung heroes of our planet.
In celebration of this week’s release of Disneynature’s Wings of Life, I have a delightful 25-page educational guide, created by Disney’s Animal Kingdom Education Team, which introduces learners in grades 2–4 to the amazing and often unseen world of pollinators through science, math and art.
These amazing activity sheets, games and units of inquiry help curious young minds explore the plant and animal worlds as well as the many ways that humans depend on them.
With Earth Day only days away these would be ideal activities to do with your family to celebrate the day.
