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 generational differences are seen between the characters in this story? What does each come to appreciate about the others? What real life personalities are spoofed in this movie?

How do the individuals in this story approach Christmas? Which one is most like you? Are you all about efficiency, do you turn all of the responsibilities over to others or do you still enjoy the magic of the season?

What are the challenges of getting old? Why does Grandsanta feel so left out? How can families include elderly members in the holiday festivities?
