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 marooned, what does the family do to ensure their survival? How do their different talents and skills benefit the group? How does their experience help them bond with one another?

Why did the family choose to leave Switzerland? What things did they leave behind? What did they hope to find in a new country?
