Wind

1972 9 min
Leaving soon

A child's first discovery of wind--the silent, invisible something that tickles his fancy, ruffles his hair, ripples the grass around him--portrayed here in winsome animated drawings. But the artist also shows the elemental force that carries all before it. Without words but with sound effects, this is a film of universal appeal.

Education

Ages 9 to 11
The forces of nature are unpredictable. To continue on the theme of wind, students can be asked to make simple drawings on transparencies, illustrating the natural forces often unleashed during Canadian winters. The challenge is to convey the sense of cold, the wind and the snow using drawings. Then, have students show their pictures on the overhead projector, and accompany them with a made-up narrative.
