Still shot from the movie: Pinocchio (Disney’s).

Pinocchio (Disney’s)

When an aging wood caver (voiced by Christian Rub) uses his tool to construct a beautiful puppet, he names his creation Pinocchio (voiced by Dickie Jones) and wishes the little figure could be the son he longs for. Although his heart's desire is granted by the Blue Fairy (voice of Evelyn Venable), she cannot make Pinocchio into a real boy unless the wooden toy shows himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish.

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 Blue Fairy describes a conscience as “something that helps you choose between right and wrong, counsels in moments of temptation, and keeps you on the straight and narrow.” What did Jiminy Cricket do when Pinocchio chose to ignore him? Does your conscience respond the same way?

Pinocchio’s theme song purports, “If you wish upon a star…your dreams come true.” In Jiminy Cricket’s introduction he claims the story proves that statement is true — but does it? What had to happen before Geppetto’s wish could be granted?
