Using a movie to teach inquiry and writing

The 1/2 students will be inventing an building robots this term. We watched the movie Meet the Robinsons to show them all about inventions. The movie is full of time machines, robots, meatball cannons and other crazy inventions.

We are also learning about narratives this term. We are teaching students to take notes on a narrative to help identify the setting, characters, problem, solution and the main events in the story. The students took notes during the movie which will help them to retell the story and find the main idea in later lessons.

What an educationally packed lesson that was!

It’s fair to say the kids were thoroughly engaged!



Weam’s fantastic note taking.
