Homeschooling with Netflix : The World


Homeschooling with Netflix, Learning About Our World

 

Homeschooling with Netflix

When it comes to learning about our planet and other cultures, travel is the ultimate best way to learn. Travel, however, is expensive and not always possible. A decent alternative to travel is to watch documentaries and films about our world and the people and animals who live on it. This is why I love homeschooling with Netflix, for a small monthly fee you have access to thousands of shows, quite a few of them being documentaries.

I love homeschooling with Netflix, it affords us flexibility and a wealth of easily-accessible learning materials. If you’re interested in using Netflix (as well as Amazon and other streaming services) in your homeschooling, the Facebook group Secular Homeschooling with Netflix is a fantastic resource!

What follows is a list of 50 shows about the world on Netflix*. Here you’ll find shows about people living in extreme climates, shows about natural disasters and unexplained phenomena, animals who share the planet with us, and a healthy dose of shows featuring the geography of various regions.

*Please note that all shows listed were available on Netflix US as of the date of publishing.
