Handout for the movie "In the time of the butterflies" has several sections.
The first section students will answer as they watch the movie "In the time of the butterflies".
The second section has discussion questions in which students can work with a partner or a group to discuss and then share with the class (pair sharing activity).

Movie is based on the novel written by Julia Alvarez. The butterfly sisters are Dominican heroes. As a closing activity, students can make butterflies in honor of the Mirabal sisters and decorate the room. I usually have each student make three butterflies; Minerva, Mate and Patria.
Great way to make connections to Social Studies.
