I'm trying to find videos/movies/documentaries that work with various chapters of SOTW. I thought it'd be a fun resource here to combine collaborative efforts and see what we come up with! I keep meaning to start this thread and I keep forgetting, so here it is LOL

When you post, try and have the 'details' before the 'commentary'. Like this:

SOTW Volume 1/2/3/4
Chapter Number and Title
Netflix-
Youtube-
Hulu-

Please include the link if possible, to save the headache of searching endlessly for the same thing!

On your mark....get set.....GO!

(I've got a ton of links for Ancient Egypt videos, I'll get them up in a bit, baby is fussing!)

GOOD moms let their kids lick the beaters. GREAT moms turn off the mixer first!

Neat idea! We'll be doing SOTW someday (want to do pre-history first) and I think this is a great idea. We have the Roku so we can pull up stuff on TV anytime, which makes it even more convenient (3 people watching a laptop screen is hard!) We use Netflix for science or geography, usually, as the IMAX films are stunning on tv. I'll have to look for dinosaur, evolution, earth's development, etc and use that for now.

Did you know that math lessons are available on Netflix, too? I recently came across those. Never watched them but thought it was cool

WOHM to DS11 and DD9, both T1Ds

I don't have my volume 1 of SotW, but we loved this video of The Mesopotamians by They Might Be Giant when studying them.

Someone asked this questions over at the WTM boards for the middle ages and these were the results:

During volume three we plan on watching Liberty kids (which can be found at most libraries and on Netflix)

My son LOVED that! He was so excited that he recognized the people in the song. Thanks for posting it.

You know, it never even occurred to me to save the list of Netflix documentaries we watched while doing History 1 & 2 with K12 (they're pretty much identical to SotW 1 & 2). I thought I was just weird. :

Story of One was a great one off Netflix for us-- it explores the roots of mathematics mostly in ancient history (so vol. 1) but through modern day to computers and binary also.

I have others for vol. 1, but I'll have to dig up titles. Thanks for the link to the WTM thread with the Middle Ages suggestions.
