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 challenges do inventors face when perfecting their creations? What problem did Professor Potts have with his candy? What other inventions have come about by chance or as the result of an apparent failure? Read about 3M’s Post-it Notes, Penicillin, and Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.

If you could go on any adventure, what mode of transportation would you want? What special capabilities would it have?
