Must See Movies: Adventure





Medium (5-11 activities)


England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales

Expand your horizons and dare to explore places you've only ever dreamed of with the brave explorers in this selection. From crossing boundaries and admirably facing up to new threats, to using escapism and fantasy as a way of helping to process real-life issues, this selection embraces mystery, magic and a pioneering spirit. Whether it's pushing their comfort zone or throwing themselves headlong into a new experience, the heroes of the adventure selection embrace the thrill of the journey as much as the wonder of the destination. 

The films in this theme are divided into four strands: Action-packed, Journeys, Time Adventurers and Terrific Teams. For each strand, there are activity outlines and extension activities that can be used with any of the films listed in that section. The activities in this resource explore how films can take young people on exciting experiences, encountering thrilling expeditions and new worlds. 

If you are looking for the Must See Movies Before You Grow Up family activities insted of the teacher resources, you can download the Adventure theme activity from the landing page.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
