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 are adoptive parents portrayed in this film? How does Ben show his love for Otis?

Cow tipping is a common urban myth (although some would argue it’s true) portrayed in some films. In the movie Cars, the activity is also spoofed when two automobiles go out for a night of tractor tipping. To decide if you believe this legend, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cow_tipping.
