Homeschool Day is September 12, and to mark the occasion, Dolphin Tale 2 opened in theaters.
I had heard of Dolphin Tale, but had no idea there was a homeschool connection with it. It turns out that the people who run Winter’s aquarium are a homeschooling family!
Our family is anxiously waiting to see both of the movies now, and doing the curriculum made us even more excited. This curriculum is offered for FREE on Homeschool Movie Club. (They also have lots of other curricula made from movies.)
While there are tiny clips from the movie within the curriculum, none of the story is given away, so no spoilers. 🙂
The curriculum, written by Apologia author Sherri Seligson, is divided up into five lessons.
There are five videos and five corresponding lesson printouts. (Ink tip: I started on page 3 of each lesson, to avoid wasting ink.)
This is a mini curriculum, so it’s obviously not meant to cover a whole school year. It’s a fun extra to your science curriculum, a weekend study, or just an additional fun learning experience, especially for animal-lovers.
The boys loved the videos, and we re-wound a few favorite parts.
The printouts held their attention, and we did them all as a group, taking turns on filling things out.
Since they are artists, they really loved the finish the drawing pages, and enjoyed the information on the bottom of those pages.
They didn’t appreciate the map as much, lol.
The veterinarian part was interesting and something new.
We really enjoyed this curriculum, and plan to check out others offered from Homeschool Video Club, and again, can’t wait to see the movies.
Here’s a trailer from the movie:
Have you seen the movie? How about the first – did you ever see that one?
Do you think you’ll check out the curriculum for your family?
