This movie trailer theme activity would be great to complete as a class, in small groups, or as individual activity for a technology station.
This activity includes a recording sheet and an example answer sheet for the teacher.
The students are asked to record the title of the movie, what they saw happen, what they believe the theme to be, and why they believe that is the theme. The last two columns would work as a sentence starter for further work on theme as it is in the format "I think the theme is.... because in the clip I saw..."
The example sheet includes three possible movie trailers to use, their links on youtube, and the answers.
This activity is no prep and ready to go. It is highly adaptable based on which movie trailers you would like to use and how much support you want to provide students.
