Chimpanzee Worksheets & Educator’s Guide from Disneynature

When Disney puts out a new movie, they sometimes send us fun printable activities to support the movie marketing efforts which we usually post on Cartoon Jr. But today, I get to share with you a very special free educational resource that goes way beyond movie marketing.

Disneynature is the first new Disney-branded film label from The Walt Disney Studios in more than 60 years. The label was launched to bring the world’s top nature filmmakers together to capture a variety of wildlife subjects and stories. The first three releases under the Disneynature label—“Earth,” “Oceans” and “African Cats”—are among the top four highest grossing feature-length nature films of all time. Their newest movie Chimpanzee is coming out on Earth Day, April 20th. To celebrate the launch, I get to give you 9 free worksheets and African rainforest animal flashcards, along with an incredible 135 page downloadable Educator’s Guide to the movie (which, by the way, contains SO much high quality material that you can put it to use immediately, even before the movie comes out!).

The whole Chimpanzee unit here is targeted to children in grades 2-3 and 4-6. But wait – there’s more! Here are six fun Chimpanzee activity pages for kids pre-K though 2nd grade!
