10 Sites for Educational Documentaries

"Documentary films constitute a broad category of nonfictional motion pictures intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record. (Wikipedia)"  Documentaries are used in education all the time to educate and inform students about different nonfictional topics.  While there are a ton of sites to choose from, I've decide to curate this list to make it easier for educators to find what they are looking for.

*This list is in alphabetical order.
