|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 this film portray society’s consumerism? What effect does the excess of possessions have on wildlife? In what other ways do the human encroach upon the animals?
The little group of animals call themselves a family. What kinds of families are depicted within the larger group? Why do most of the animals so readily accept RJ? What effect does his lack of honesty have on their family unit?
How do the animals respond to the junk food? What concerns does Verne have about the new food source? How does he try to maintain their normal lifestyle? What health problems can arise from an exclusive diet of chips, pop, cookies etc?
