This movie guide accompanies the movie "Up"
This has 20 questions in chronological order mixed between long answers and multiple choice. At the end of the worksheet there are 2 additional written questions that need to be answered with a paragraph. It is aimed at the younger audience and normally I would act the scene out to give clues and help. It's great fun with kids after watching the movie.
This movie is about seventy-eight year old Carl Fredricksen who travels to Paradise Falls in his home equipped with balloons. He accidentally takes a young boy named Russell along for the ride. They both end up going on a great adventure.
*Available in a 3 x pack for $2.99 - Moana, Bug's Life & Up
How can movies help students learn English?
Learning from movies is motivating and enjoyable
- Sometimes students need a change in style, and movies are generally an integral
part of a student's life.
Movies provides authentic and varied language
- It's always a good idea to introduce students examples of English in real
situations. This includes accents different to your own.
Movies gives a visual context
- This gives the student the ability to interpret the language in full visual context.
To see such visual supports as facial expressions and gestures simultaneously.
Variety and flexibility
- Movies can also act as a springboard for follow-up tasks such as discussions,
debates on social issues, role plays, reconstructing a dialogue or summarising.
As always, an answer sheet is included
