Netflix is a Homeschooling Mama's Best Friend

We love Netflix because we have access to so many wonderful documentaries and educational shows that my boys love to watch! We also use PBS, which we subscribe to. I thought I would start a board so I could share some of our favorites. (Please note that Netflix & PBS sometimes change their offerings. Some of these may not be available. Some of them can also be found on YouTube or elsewhere online.)
