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.

What compels Ted to up his bid against his landlord at the horse auction? What factors contribute to his actions?

Does meeting soldiers on both side of the conflict make this film different from many war movies? How does it make the story more realistic?

Albert says our lives are made up of big days and small days. How do big days change or impact a person’s course? What are some of the big days in your life?

This movie is based on the children’s book War Horse, by Michael Morpugo.
