Planet Ocean DVD/Blu-ray Review


2013-03-31 14.49.17

I love movies that help children and adults discover more about the world we live in.  Similar in style of the famous BBC hit Planet Earth, this new DVD Planet Ocean (not created by the BBC) explores only the world under the sea.  As is quite evident from the pictures I’ve shared in this post, the images are beautiful and amazing.

My boys were transfixed for about the first 30 minutes.  Ultimately the movie (one hour and 33 minutes) proved to be a bit too long for my three and five year old, but my eight year old watched the entire film.

The film starts in a discovery, informative manner, but progresses throughout the movie as a call to action to protect our Earth’s oceans.  If you are looking to teach your children about the importance of protecting our planet- specifically our oceans- on Earth Day or really any day, this film is a great teaching resource.

I love films like this.  Obviously the learning experience is enhanced with such visually appealing images.
