I just finished watching Dolphin Tale again with my boys. And, yes, I cried again. The whole family was right there in the living room too, so I kinda just looked to the side to wipe away a stray tear or two. Movies like that get me.
We watched it again to kick off a special homeschool curriculum that we’re doing next week to celebrate the release of Dolphin Tale 2 this weekend at the movies. All next week my kids will be studying dolphins for science class. They’ll focus on marine biology, ecosystems, and anatomy and physiology. And you know what…they’ll love it.
We’re going to go see Dolphin Tale 2 on Sunday to kick it off.
Why am I telling you this? It’s because I want you to know just how much fun it is to homeschool for both the parents and the kids. I’d love to encourage everyone to do it. You didn’t become a parent just to pawn them off on someone else all the time.
If you want to try out this dolphin curriculum with us, here’s what you’ll need to do. It’s cheap and easy.
- Watch the first Dolphin Tale movie.
- Go see the second one at the theater.
- Download a free curriculum guide HERE from my friends at Homeschool Movie Club.
- If you have Netflix, check out Eye of the Dolphin and Dolphins: the Ultimate Guide on instant play.
- Have fun!
If you’re really into it, go visit dolphins at an aquarium, marine animal hospital, or in the wild. Call it a homeschool vacation.
For inspiration, here’s a video of me and my 10yo son playing with wild dolphins in Hilton Head SC…
