This worksheet accompanies the movie "The Lorax"
This has 20 questions in chronological order. 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.
Student has to also write a summary about the movie. (SL.3.2 SL.4.2, SL.5.2)
This is from Dr. Seuss' classic tale of a grumpy forest creature who fights to protect his world. The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he searches for a tree that will help him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams.
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
