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.

Although Evan’s life ambition is to change the world, why is he hesitant to accept the job of building an ark? What does Joan learn about the way prayers are answered?

What sacrifices does the Baxter family make for their father’s career? What impact does the ark have on them? How would you respond to such an odd request?

What are some of the film’s inconsistencies? Why are animals like elephants and zebras included? You may also want to compare the movie script with the account of Noah, found in the book of Genesis in the Bible.
