Mars is a great addition to your movie collection if you are into Science or a teacher/parent.

My husband is very into Science and is constantly learning new things. Personally, documentaries usually bore me in the way they are portrayed. I am happy to report we both enjoyed watching this. I learned things I did not know about Mars. Did you know it's very COLD on Mars although it's only one planet away from Earth?

I think this would be great for a homeschooling parent.

It's easy to add this into your curriculum. There is even a study guide you can download and print to go along with this movie. How cool is that? You can download the Complete Curriculum Guide right here on my blog.
