This short, 25 minute movie is great for a quick, no-prep Halloween activity. Although it is a cartoon there are quite a few high-level vocabulary words such as sincerity and hypocrisy. Challenge your students to analyze these words and explore the concept of beliefs, especially believing in something you can't see or prove. This can also make a great substitute no-prep lesson since it is unrated and certainly appropriate for all audiences. Discuss with your students 7 high-level, short answer and essay questions by pausing at the designated times on the movie guide.
Note: This film can be found on some streaming video sites as of October 2017. Simply search the title and you can find a full length version of the film.
An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film. Many answers will not fit into a 'box'. Students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters' dialogue and behavior.
This product includes:
A student movie guide, PDF print version (2 pages)
A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (2 pages)
This digital version is intended for a paperless classroom if your students each have a tablet/iPad. Here is a method that worked for me:
1. Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don't already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
2. Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with the students.
3. Ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
