How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does this film ascribe human characteristics to the animals? Does that make it easier for audiences to relate to them? What role do the aardvarks and turtle play in this movie? Is it helpful to have a combination of serious and fun depictions to engage viewers?

In the movie Earth, predators such as the big cats are portrayed as the antagonists. How does that change in this movie? Does focusing on the mothers make these animals seem more likeable than when they are simply the hunters?
