Still shot from the movie: Alpha and Omega.

Alpha and Omega

Even though they are from the same pack, Humphrey (voice of Justin Long) has no hope of winning the affections of Kate (voice of Hayden Panettiere) because she is an alpha wolf, while he is at the bottom of the social order. But his prospects improve when the two of them are caught by wildlife officers and relocated to Idaho as part of their breeding program. Kate however is more concerned about retuning home to Canada.

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.

What do the “alpha” and “omega” wolves symbolize in human society? What are the father wolves asked to accept in order for their children to be happy? Are differences in cultures or class distinctions easy to overlook in a relationship?

Humphrey is an "omega" and seen as being fun loving with a good sense of humor. Kate is an “alpha” and is more serious about life. Is it possible to have a directed, determined personality and a sense of humor? Why do you think these characters are depicted in this way?
