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.

In the film, the humpback whales create a bubble net in order to catch fish to feed on. What other things do the animals in this story do to increase their ability to survive? How do some of them work together?

What impact does music have in this documentary in creating feeling or emotion? Is that a fair way for filmmakers to elicit audience reaction? How does the music during the penguin segment differ from that of the elephant scenes?

What do the mother animals do in this film to protect and encourage their babies?
