Every Christmas my 5th grade class is just discovering the movie, "Home Alone". Since it is such a classic, I created this "graphic organizer" in which students look at the main characters of the movie, their character traits, their fears, and the relationship between the characters. It also has students summarize the plot as well as identify 3 main problems and solutions within the movie. It helps reinforce that stories have different structures, that can be found through text and in film. It's an easy way to get administration approval to watch this classic in class and appreciate their reactions to the movie, usually for the first time.
