This package contains activity sheets that go with five cartoon movies. It will continue to grow, as I am sure the film industry will continue to make animated movies that we can use in our classrooms. The following films have activity sheets created in this set:
• Planes (energy, force, and motion)
• Finding Nemo (Fish Philosophy)
• Monsters, Inc. (economics)
• FernGully (conservation and natural resources)
• The Lion King (habitats, ecosystems, and adaptations)
Several speaking and listening standards are covered throughout this package, depending on how many of the above topics you cover in your classroom. These provide an opportunity for teachers to "get back" some of that class time at the end of a unit, whether needed for grading projects, working one on one with students, or finishing up assessments. Other students are engaged and still actively searching for the topics covered in the unit discussed.
The activities provided allow for a class discussion, small group discussion, or any type of informal assessment that could be considered speaking and listening.
