In this assignment, students view the “Land Before Time” movie A Great Day for Flyers and will choose one of the characters from this movie. They will then write either an interview between the character and the student or they will pretend to be a paleontologist who discovers this dinosaur and describes its impact on the world.
This activity is highly engaging for students and allows them to analyze a character while synthesizing that information with the Grade Four Social Studies Curriculum.
This assignment includes all planning and can be changed to adapt to other “Land Before Time” films. There is also a rubric included for easy assessment.
