Winter Dolphin

A while ago we bought a dvd called Dolphin Tale as the boys are big fans of dolphins (and whales), surprisingly this was a great advert for home education as one of the characters is a very happy and motivated home educated girl and the main character is having a lot of trouble at school. And it is the true story of a dolphin that gets tangled in nets and loses her tail, and the children who help her to swim again.

But aside from the home education angle, the boys got a lot out of this film, they found out about dolphins and animal injuries including prosthetic limbs (for humans too), they now know a lot about marine life rescue, they like to look at the aquarium website where there is a Winter (the name of the dolphin) webcam and just enjoy the story again and again.

The real Winter
