25 Educational Documentaries to Check Out on Netflix

With schools still trying to come up with a plan for educating kids remotely and online, parents have been left scrambling trying to find resources and ways to help their kids keep learning.

In an effort to help keep me own kids learning and engaged while they hang out with my wife and I at home, I have compiled a list of 25 Netflix documentaries that may be worth having a look at.

Please note that while many if not most of these may be suitable for a wide range of ages, as a parent you’ll need to the judgement call.
