Movies that teach kids about climate change

Inspire your kids to care for our planet this Earth Day with these kids' movies about climate change. Who's ready for family movie night?

Climate change is tough to discuss with kids, but these kid-friendly movies are an excellent way to start the conversation. Documentaries such as A Beautiful Planet and Chasing Ice offer kids a vivid window onto the forces that shape the planet and give them a deeper appreciation of Mother Earth. Animated treats such as Ice Age: The Meltdown and Happy Feet Two are a great way to expose young kids to the concept of global warming. And for older kids, docs such as An Inconvenient Truth and The 11th Hour may inspire kids to do their part to preserve the planet.
