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.

Near the beginning of the movie, Marlin begs Nemo not to do something dangerous. Why does Nemo choose to ignore him? Have you ever made a poor decision simply because your parents told you not to?

Dory has a very different attitude about life than Marlin. How can being optimistic help you meet life’s challenges? When can being overly optimistic cause problems? Do you think Dory sometimes did things that could have put her and Marlin in danger?

Did you know Finding Nemo won the OscarĀ® for Best Animated Film and received nominations for Best Original Screenplay, Best Original Score and Best Sound Editing?
