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.

Once they are free from their cages, how do the different primates react to the humans? Why do some seem more intent on enacting revenge? Are their reactions very humanlike?

What are the dangers of drug development? What are the advantages? How can companies ethically test their products? Should animals be used in that process? What are the alternatives?

How does this movie tie itself to the previous Planet of the Ape films?
