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.

Daphne Sheldrick worked tirelessly to perfect a formula that would be similar to the natural milk elephants received from their mothers. What other challenges would be inherent in raising an animal with plans to return it to the wild? What would make it difficult for the creatures to make the adjustment to living independently?

Both of these women have a passion for the work they are doing. What do you think will happen when they are no longer heading up their organizations? Will it be difficult for someone else to carry on with the same fervor? What passion would you like to pursue in life?
