Teach Kids About Dinosaurs Through This Netflix Show!

Our kids and we ourselves learned about dinosaurs through the Jurassic Park series. Now, there’s a new series — Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous!

All of our kids at some point had a dinosaur phase. The mighty T-Rex was appealing to them as king of the dinosaur world. Unfortunately, some of us who watched the old Jurassic Park might find mold in our VHS tapes or have broken DVD players. Plus, there wasn’t much censoring in the old one so your little ones watching humans get eaten by dinosaurs may not be the best thing to watch. That’s why there’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous — the kid-friendly installment in the Jurassic World franchise.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is a dinosaur documentary for kids.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous jumps off from the last Jurassic World with the hybrid T-Rex/Velociraptor creation: the Indominus Rex running around. Just like most of the films in the Jurassic franchise, it all starts with a park. The park has a laboratory that’s genetically reviving prehistoric creatures and the kids want to go. At first, the only creatures the kids will get to see are the herbivores. The Stegosaurus, Triceratops — all the dinosaurs that are often very docile.

It explains how prehistoric creatures lived.

The kids can watch this and learn about all sorts of creatures from the past. For most kids, Jurassic Park and World were what encouraged kids to get more into the Sciences. Whether it’s Biology or Genetics, the dinosaur-centric franchise got our kids wanting to learn more about animals. However, the kids still need our guidance when they watch the show since some dinosaurs like the Indominus Rex are purely fictional and exclusive to the Jurassic World franchise.

Encourage our kids’ love for science!

Science sometimes appears to be a boring subject but kids do love dinosaurs. Especially if there are displays of power from the T-Rex, the kids will want to learn more. A lot of times, it takes a bit more stimuli to encourage our kids to look into subjects most deemed boring. And not to worry, kids won’t have to wait long for the episodes. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is up to Season 4 so, there’s a lot for them to catch up to.
