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.

Perhaps you would like to know what bats are really all about? Check this web page from Germany: http://www.tp4.ruhr-uni-bochum.de/~lr/bats/ Another resource is this movie’s website: www.batsthemovie.com . If you go to “Free Fun and Games” and select the “Bats Trivia Game”, you will be quizzed on your knowledge of real bats. Pushing the “Hint” button under each question will lead you to other websites about bats.
