The kids are the champions of their own destiny in this collection of films in which small people make a big difference. Refusing to be side-lined, the children in these films stand up to injustice and dare to take on forces bigger than themselves. By creating their own rules, proving themselves worthy contenders against overbearing adults, and revealing the special solidarity and loyalty that children have to protect what they care about, these plucky kids are inspirational and moving in equal measure.
The films in this theme have been grouped in three strands: Home and School, Into the Wild and Where Fantasy Meets Reality. 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 the young protagonists in the films overcome a range of physical, social and personal obstacles.
If you are looking for the Must See Movies Before You Grow Up family activities insted of the teacher resources, you can download the Kids Rule! theme activity from the landing page.
