|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 making humans the alien visitors change the perspective in this story? How do the residents of Planet 51 feel about the astronaut? Why do people usually presuppose that aliens will be enemies?
Why are we often afraid of the unknown? How do Lem, Skiff and Chuck change as they get to know one another? How is Lem’s knowledge of space increased by his interaction with the astronaut?
