The Sound of Music with Julie Andrews is one of my favorite films. It is filled with classic songs, a rich background, and memorable characters.

Set in pre-World War II Austria, a young nun, Maria, becomes the governess of seven children. The children's father, a widowed Navy captain, runs his household just like he runs one of his ships. Slowly, Maria begins to bring joy and love into their family through music.

The movie study is designed with grades 4-8 in mind, and activities can be adjusted for older or younger students.

There are 18 pages of activities and an answer key included. You can view the preview for a more thorough look at some of the pages.
