The Kid Should Really See This Part II

My son curated the curated videos made for adults but great for kids at The Kid Should See This. I’m sharing 4 videos that I loved from this great newletter.

The Kid Really Should See This!

The Washington Ballet’s Hardest Dance Moves

If you had doubts that ballet is a sport, watch this video and be convinced! They are amazing athletes!

Animated History of Planet Earth

I loved this history of planet earth via animated graphics. It held my son’s attention for 7.21 minutes. In YouTube time, that’s like 7 hours!

The Amazing Intelligent Crow

I had to search through dozens of crow experiments to find this exact video that I saw months ago, but that video really stayed with me so it was worth the search. The crow using multiple tools to get to the prize; not so different from apes or humans!

Circus Circulus

This Brit circus troupe uses abandoned warehouses to set up shop. My son and I were mesmerized by their performances.

Bonus Because I Could Not Resist!

  1. Amazing how stereotypes can color our perception of things.

  2. These are great short videos for kids. I was even interested in the animated earth, the crow and the British circus troupe. Such great shares.

    Have you seen the video of the elephant that paints its own self portrait. Makes you really think.

    • Hi Erik,
      I KNOW!!! That crow!! I watched it a year ago but could not get that crow video out of my mind! I had to search for a half hour to find that particular one. There are a bunch of crow experiment videos out there. I guess the crow is a favorite animal to test for intelligence but we still don’t really understand to what extent is truly is smart!

  6. Wow, those dancers are AMAZINGLY beautiful! I just love ballet. It’s so elegant. Gorgeous how they can do such amazing things!

    Thanks so much for sharing this, Mia!

    • Hi Lisa,
      I KNOW!!! I knew ballet dancers are amazingly flexible and able to jump high in the air but those moves are remarkable. My mom friend has two kids; the son is a serious downhill skier and trains year round, the daughter is a serious ballet dancer with the Boston Ballet. The mom showed the video to the son saying, “See, dancers are athletes too. You try to do it.” And it’s true!
