The National Wildlife Federation is proud to be the education partner for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, teaming up with the film to inspire families to get outdoors, explore nature, and learn about the incredible wildlife in their own backyard.
When Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist, he and his new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson) journey to a place few people have ever seen. It’s a place of stunning beauty, strange creatures, volcanoes, mountains of gold, and more than one astonishing secret.
Learn more about super pollinators and other wildlife life in the educator's guide filled with great activities!
This guide helps students explore the themes of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island in an educational setting. The activities are designed for grades 3 through 5, with extensions for younger and older children. These activities meet national standards for English/Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, and Visual Arts.
Design a Certified Wildlife Habitat™: When Sean reaches the mysterious island, he is amazed by all of the incredible plants and animals he sees. Kids can discover the mysteries of nature right in their own backyard or schoolyard. Whether it's an apartment balcony or a 20-acre farm, kids can help create a garden that attracts incredible wildlife and helps provide proper habitat. The National Wildlife Federation’s Certified Wildlife Habitat™ program provides gardeners with all of the information they need to create inviting outdoor spaces of all shapes and sizes for birds, butterflies, and other animals.
Learn about Pollinators: “Super bees” help Sean and his family. But did you know we need “super pollinators” too? There are many native bees in this country. These are species of bees that have lived in North America for hundreds of years. Some people call these bees “super pollinators.” For instance, in a small apple orchard, 250 female blue orchard bees (a kind of native bee) can do the work of 35,000 honeybees. (No wonder they call them super pollinators!)
Green a School: The National Wildlife Federation's Eco-Schools USA program helps schools green their buildings, grounds, and curriculum. By reducing their school’s environmental footprint, kids can help pollinators and other wildlife—as well as people and the whole planet.
