If you are considering a unit on the Arctic or Environmental concerns check out the documentary Arctic Tale. It is rated G and is completely appropriate for small children (there is death and reproduction but it is really handled VERY well!). The story follows a polar bear family and a walrus family through a big chunk of their life cycle...until the cubs reproduce. It is amazingly beautiful. You also get a chance to see and learn about other types of animals found in the Arctic, including the mysterious Narwhal!
