Description

Need an easy sub plan? Maybe a movie day incentive? Keep your students engaged and extend their STEM learning by watching Dolphin Tale (2011)!

This movie follows the true story of Winter, a dolphin who loses her tail and gets saved by a rescue in Florida. Students will see rescue workers, volunteers, and engineers work together and use the engineering design process to create a new tail for Winter. Your students are sure to fall in love with Winter and be left wanting to learn more about this amazing dolphin and her rescuers.

All STEM in the Middle movie guides include before, during, and after questions to keep your students engaged and learning throughout the entire "movie day." This means you are free to catch up on grades, hold conferences, hang out with your students, or take a much-needed sick day.

This resource includes:

♦ Printable PDF, Google Slides, and Easel versions of the student activities

♦ 3 before the movie discussion questions

♦ 15 movie comprehension questions focused on engineering skills and the design process

♦ 3 after the movie tasks

♦ An answer key

Note: You will need to ensure you have access to this video through a streaming platform or rent or buy the film before using the resource with your class.
