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.

This film pairs two different eras. Is this a confusing premise? What might be the purpose for it? Does that make the answer to the water question more understandable or is it any easy cop out for the scriptwriters?

What consequences does Rango face for his lies? Do people sometimes need to pretend to be braver or better than they are in order to achieve those characteristics?

This animation attempts to spoof or make reference to several other movies. Does that kind of humor work in this film? What are the drawbacks of using it?

In this movie, one man envisions heaven as a place where he can eat Pop Tarts with Kim Novak. What would your ideal heaven include?
