We wanted to kick off this week's party by sharing with you a stunning Earth Day learning resource.
This week only, April 12-16, BBC Earth is offering a free iTunes download of the first episode in the 11-part series, "Pole to Pole." The download is available in SD or HD format. If you’re not already familiar – Planet Earth is an 11-part series presenting the story of life on Earth. The series has been four years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 71 cameramen and filming across 204 locations in 62 countries. This is described as the ultimate portrait of our planet. The download is a definite educational must-see for children as they gear up for Earth Day adventures! (Note: download available to US residents only)
