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 what ways do adults lose their childhood dreams? How does Mr. Magorium remain engaged in life? How does his attitude toward life affect his attitude toward death?

What significance does the block of wood have? How can others help us achieve the greatness within?

What value does playing have in the lives of children and adults?
