Still shot from the movie: Space Chimps.

Space Chimps

For Human Beings becoming an astronaut may be a privilege, but it feels more like conscription for Ham III (voice of Andy Samberg), one of NASA's chimpanzees. So it is with reluctance that the little primate embarks with his crew (voices of Cheryl Hines and Patrick Warburton) on a dangerous mission to retrieve a lost space probe.

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.

Courage is an important characteristic for the men and women who face the unknown and travel into space. What other careers would demand this same quality? What situations may require a show of bravery?

What stereotypical portrayals do we see in this film?

What challenges does Ham III experience while trying to live up to his grandfather’s heritage?

Dogs, monkeys and mice have all played a vital role in space exploration. Their involvement in the program allowed scientists to prepare for human flight.
