Heroes and villains provide the backbone of some of our most enduring stories. These films prove that heroes can come in all shapes and sizes, from any background and any age. Working alone, or as part of a team these characters inspire us with their feats, even when they are relatively humble. But who doesn't love a great baddie as well? Despite all of the booing and hissing, the truly great villains are more complex than they initially seem, and it is only when our hero encounters their nemesis that their greatest qualities are truly revealed.
The films in the theme are divided into three strands: Heroic Villains and Villainous Heroes, Heroes Assemble and Little Heroes. 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 support learners to examine the relationship between heroes and villains in films, their traits and journeys and how they form teams with others.
If you are looking for the Must See Movies Before You Grow Up family activities insted of the teacher resources, you can download the Heroes & Villains theme activity from the landing page.
