Product Description
"Cool Runnings" is a funny movie based on the true story about the first Jamaican bobsled team. The team competed in the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary (Canada). The PG movie was made in 1993 and is directed by Jon Turtletaub and stars John Candy, Leon, and Doug E. Doug. Besides many comedic antics of the Jamaicans, who had never even snow before, let alone bobsled; the movie stresses the importance of team work, self confidence, and perseverance.
The movie is appropriate for 4th grade through 8th grade and fits in with biography studies, Olympics and Character Education. There are two pages of student response questions. They can be used to assess student comprehension of the movie, or the second page of questions could be used before the movie to activate students' background on the topic.
The first page asks the students to use a Venn diagram to compare two of the main characters in the movie. Specifically, the students should compare their leadership styles. The second page asks students to provide short responses to two questions. The questions are about the students' opinions about trying new things that might be hard.
