From the studio who bought you How to Train Your Dragon comes the magical new big screen adventure, Abominable in UK cinemas October 11! To mark the occasion, we've partnered with Universal Pictures to bring you an engaging cross-curricular resource for pupils aged 5-10.
Centred around a snakes and ladders-style boardgame, with educational ‘chance' cards to test pupils' knowledge throughout, our City Lights to Mountain Heights resource takes learners on an interactive, play-led journey through urban and rural China, just like Yi, Jin, Peng and their yeti friend Everest do in DreamWorks Animations' new film!
Touching on literacy and PSHE learning, the three lesson plans will focus on the characters and friendships in the film, plus engage learners in geography and maths subjects when exploring the settings all while researching geographical and cultural facts about China for pupils to add to their Bao Buns and Blueberries boardgame along the way.Register and download today!
Free Abominable lesson plans and A Postcard from the Himalayas writing competition!
To complement the Abominable boardgame pack, we have FREE downloadable lesson plans with geography, maths, literacy and PSHE tasks peppered throughout. Pupils will build on their learning from the Bao Buns and Blueberries boardgame by entering our A Postcard from the Himalayas competition, where they'll be tasked with describing the breath-taking landscapes and sights of the Himalayan mountains that feature in the film.
There are 15 Abominable goodie bags to be won including pencil cases, stationery sets, backpacks and more so be sure your students enter for their chance to win!
The competition closes 1 November 2019.
What's more, there's a complementary online quiz to extend learning and revise fun geographical facts at home! Get pupils to test their knowledge and maybe their parents' too to help further consolidate their learning.
DreamWorks Animation and Pearl Studio’s co-production Abominable takes audiences on an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of Shanghai to the breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes. When teenage Yi (Chloe Bennet, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in Shanghai, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Tenzing Norgay Trainor) and Peng (Albert Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Eddie Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Sarah Paulson) to help Everest get home.
