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.

Can you count how many times Pacha forgave the pompous emperor? Can this same tactic work in reality? In the end, how did Pacha and Kuzco settle their differences even though they were still very different people? How did they both benefit from this arrangement?

This movie doesn’t have the many “high tech” animation designs we are used to seeing in recent Disney features. Does the plainer style of animation distract or add to the story? How does the animation style lend itself to the fairy tale type of story that is being told?
