Le vol des dinosaures


Court métrage d’animation sur les dinosaures. Au temps de la préhistoire, ces vertébrés aimaient juste s’amuser et faire la fête toute la nuit. Mais il y a des dangers à trop s’amuser… Déguisée en fable pour enfants, cette comédie raconte leurs activités périlleuses, la cause de leur extinction ainsi que l’évolution de leur espèce dans l’arbre généalogique des animaux. Soyez néanmoins rassurés, cela n'est pas une histoire véridique.

Ages 6 to 10
Students research dinosaurs, pick one, research and report (1 pager) environment, food, characteristics, etc. Students brainstorm what we can learn from dinosaurs’ “mistakes” as presented in film and reflect on their own practices (eating, relationships, etc.) and write how they can improve or what they would like to change. Students write stories about an animal today or dinosaur - one bad habit, how they deal with it and change for the better.
