Deadly 60’s Steve Backshall answers children’s questions from across the world to help keep them entertained during this period of isolation. He has set up his own Youtube channel, you can view it here. His channel is quickly filling up with short videos and Q & A’s to keep children of all ages entertained. If your child is anything like my Year 1 and LOVE Deadly 60, then they will really enjoy these new additions being added by Steve Backshall.
In his latest offering, Steve Backshall answered questions about Komodo Dragons as well as Dinosaurs, animals with the smallest and biggest brain (and no brain at all) and he answered many questions from children, including if snakes are born with all the venom that they need for their lifetime and if all animals see in black and white. Exciting stuff!
Another place worth stopping by if you are into animals and Geography is BBC Earth Kids on Youtube, you can check their channel out here.
So if your child (or you) is into Animals then Steve Backshall’s videos are definitely worth a look. If you follow his Facebook page, then you will be able to interact with him during the live streams on at 9:30 am every Wednesday (as of 25.3.20, subject to change). For Teachers, Steve Backshall is live streaming to Youtube as well and not just Facebook, therefore the clips can be watched in schools and at home.
