WALL-E and the Classroom

My nephews are here, and we’re having movie night with WALL-E and popcorn.

Ever since I first saw this movie I thought that the first section of the film would be excellent for an environmental studies unit while the last section in space would be great for Self-Reliance and the theme of independence.

Of course, the space section could also be part of a technology unit or a health unit as well.

I’m guessing Ray Bradbury would have a commentary for us, especially if you’ve read his short story “The Pedestrian” or Tom Godwin’s “The Cold Equations.”

There’s just so much in this movie!
