My kids hate sitting at a table for hours on end when learning, so I'm trying to mix it up a little. They would rather be sat glued to YouTube. How's this for a compromise... they can enjoy over 30 educational documentaries for free via the Netflix YouTube channel.
Free Netflix Documentaries
Did you know that Netflix have a channel on YouTube? They do, and you can find all sorts on there, including over 30 full length original documentaries.
Stream them for free, and enjoy the likes of eight part nature documentary Our Planet, narrated by the one and only David Attenborough.
One bonus is that you do not need to have a Netflix account, as you're watching it via YouTube. That means you can still view it on a Smart TV or other device.
The documentaries last anything from 15 minutes to 90 minutes long, and are suitable for the family to watch.
If you do want access to many more, then you can sign up to the Netflix streaming service*from $9.99 a month.
