***File revised on August 3, 2014. Updates include 1) correction of small typo, 2) font improvement, and 3) the addition of vocabulary assignments.
I have created resources that may be used in conjunction to viewing the documentary, Blackfish. These resources can be used for any class, but is especially designed for language arts/english classes as the activities require critical thinking and written responses (great for Common Core).
This product includes:
1) Movie questions
2) Movie questions answer key
3) 4 extended response prompts
4) Venn diagram and elaboration prompt
5) Comprehension Check
6) Comprehension Check answer key
7) Vocabulary Practice
8) “Tilly Talk”: Interviewing a neighbor
9) Research activity
10) Classroom project ideas
Personal Note: I think Blackfish is more suitable for students than other documentaries I've seen on this topic (because it's not as graphic). It's very easy to follow and extremely effective. I'd recommend this activity for students in grades 6-12.
If you like this resource, please rate and comment. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact me. Thanks!:)
