The Big Idea Experience is a fun and exciting character education program that helps elementary kids learn about making smart decisions by teaching a Big Idea, which is a value that is important for kids to know. Each month the focus is on a new Big Idea. The Big Idea Experience creates high-energy videos each month that help students understand the Big Idea and how they can put it into practice.

The Big Idea can be reinforced at the school through teacher resources, media resources, visual resources, daily announcements, and family resources. Each monthly Big Idea has a definition, animal, and color associated with it to make it more applicable and easier for kids to remember.

The videos vary in length from 5-10 minutes. Each video is made to be short, fun, and educational so that teachers can fit them into their busy schedules.

We produce 2 to 3 videos each month.
