From oceans to lakes to fountains at the park—water is the best! Water helps us grow, live, and stay cool. In this adventure, we’ll explore wet wonders, from waterfalls and icy glaciers to creatures of the deep.

Family Activity

Remember Dory, the little blue fish from “Finding Nemo?” She’s on her own journey home in “Finding Dory,” a sweet family film from Disney-Pixar. It’s rentable on YouTube and other streaming platforms. As always, check out the Common Sense Media review first to make sure it’s a good fit for your family.

And if you’re looking for an undersea learning experience for the whole family, check out another episode of “Our Planet.” This one is all about coastal seas. (Note to grown-ups: “Our Planet” includes references to predators and climate change that some young viewers may find worrying.)
