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.

Why is Dave reluctant to make a commitment? How does he feel about referring to the chipmunks as family rather than friends?

How does the lifestyle of the rich and spoiled affect Alvin and his buddies? Are there drawbacks to being famous?

As for breathing helium, here is a link that explains the dangers.
