Many families are either homeschooling or learning from home this school year thanks to COVID-19. Disney Nature offers educational materials for curriculum, lesson plans, and fun activities that continue the viewing experience for families and students grades 2-6 while inspiring a desire to protect the planet through connections to nature.
These materials go along with Disney Nature’s movies on Disney+. There are materials to go along with 4 Disney Nature films as well as some animated Disney films like Finding Dory, Moana, and The Jungle Book.
Disney Nature Elephant offers an Activity Packet and an Educator’s Guide for download. The Educator’s Guide has 6 lessons about elephants with adaptations for different grade levels. The activity packet has a few activities to go along with the guide.
