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 Surly treat others? Why is he banished from the park without a trial? Why does Buddy continue to stick around?

What do the animals do to prepare for winter? What things do you do, if any, to prepare for winter?

What characters make changes in this story? Why does Surly choose to not take credit for saving the animals? How does he help them?
