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.

How does Elsa’s wardrobe change when she decides to free her powers? How do moviemakers use clothing, hairstyles, etc, to depict the emotional changes of a character?

During one song, Kristoff is referred to as a “fixer upper”. Does this film promote a battle of the sexes? Should men be put down in this manner? Does this message do anything to portray the importance of both genders?

Disney movies often use the orphan scenario. (See Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Bambi.) Why is this so scary for children? What positive family relationships are portrayed in this animation?

This movie is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, The Snow Queen.
