As you guys know I have quite a span of age ranges in our house from preschool to middle school! Sometimes that means finding ways to cross connect interests from one age group into another age group! My older boys have really been into their favorite Marvel movies this year and even I wanted to see the new Spider-Man Far From Home movie!

The trailers looked fantastic when I first saw them and the movie did not disappoint! There are NO SPOILERS in this post just in case you haven’t seen it yet!

Spider-Man Far From Home Cast + Movie Review & Science Experiments

The REALLY cool thing about this awesome new Marvel Studios movie by Sony Pictures is that not only do they have free printable science activity cards below (which are pretty epic for your older kids / teens) BUT in the bonus materials of the Bluray + DVD they also have teacher travel tips for visiting the European continent! How cool is that?! What we really love about the bonus features is that it lets you take a peek into some of the technology and stunts used to create movies like this.

Basic Film Synopsis:

Tom Holland (aka – Spider-Man aka – Peter Parker) comes back in Far From Home as the next chapter after Spider-Man: Homecoming. Our favorite hero decides to join his best friends – Ned, MJ, and the rest of the gang – on a vacation to Europe. However, Peter agrees to help Nick Fury uncover the mystery of several elemental creature attacks. Spider-Man and Mysterio join forces to fight the havoc unleashed across Europe – but all is not as it seems.
