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.

The comedic use of Tasers in the movies can give children an unrealistic view of these devices. With certain types of these weapons now available for personal protection, how dangerous are these portrayals in the movies?

What does Mr. Peabody learn about childrearing? What does Sherman learn about obedience and taking risks? What negative effect can the depiction of social workers have on the way audiences view those who are involved in child protection services?

What historical character would you like to meet? What historical event would you choose to attend?

Mr. Peabody and Sherman are characters originally introduced in the 1960s animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show in segments titled Peabody’s Improbable History.
