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 Kermit respond to Doc Hopper’s bullying tactics at first? When they continue, what conclusion does the harassed frog come to? What tactics do you think work best for stopping intimidating and aggressive behavior?

What is so appealing about the “rich and famous” dream Kermit shares with the friends he meets along the way? Is life always “like a movie” where you can “write your own ending?” What do your think it actually takes to make “end of the rainbow” goals become a reality?
