Still shot from the movie: Bolt.

Bolt

In this animated adventure, Bolt (voice of John Travolta) is a dog with super powers --or so he thinks. Really he is just an actor in a TV show. This painful truth becomes a problem when the pup accidentally gets separated from his co-star and owner Penny (voice of Miley Cyrus), and has to find his way home with only the help of a stray cat (voice of Susie Essman) and a ball-imprisoned hamster (voice of Mark Walton).

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 does Bolt learn about being a hero? Does he have to have superpowers to help others?

Differentiating between the fantasy of television and the reality of life outside of the studio is a challenge for Bolt. How does he react when he learns the truth about his abilities? What new qualities does he discover in himself? What does Rhino never come to understand about Bolt?

What examples of friendship are found in this story?
