Top Ten Favorite Educational Shows on Netflix

We have run out of Top Ten Blog lists to share with you from last year’s award season. We have enjoyed the Top Ten List posts, so we are going to stick with that format for a while and bring you some of our favorites.

This week, we bring you our Top Ten Favorite Educational Shows on Netflix!


Our team is large and diverse, so of course we had a hard time narrowing it down to just ten. So I divided them up into two groups: The Younger Crowd and The Older Crowd. This week- The Younger Crowd.
