About

This pixar animation is very entertaining and provides a great prompt for getting students speaking English. 

Here are a few resources to help teach with this silent movie.

Here are 4 possible ways you can do a lesson with this video.

1. Backdoor.  A few students have their back to the screen. Other students describe the action, what's happening. Can they keep up? Switch roles part way through. Lastly watch again as the teacher narrates for the class who have their head down! 

2. Prediction.  Play the video and stop often asking students what they think will happen next.  At the end of the video, get students to write a sequel/continuation for the story called "Presto: What's Next"

3. Caption writing. Students write captions for the film and then play the film in class and have the students read/narrate. Lots of fun!

4. Retelling. Students use the cards attached after watching the film. Cut them up and students reorder and retell the story to the rest of the class. You'll have numerous versions!

This is a cool game to practice student understanding and making sentences to describe the action. 

Also, students can fill in this cartoon sheet bubbles provided.

I have used several of your video / lessons and I have to say they are fantastic. Thank you so much for all your hard work.

Thanks so much for this!  Excellent resource!

Yes it is - especially for the right age group / class. 

I've updated a link to the video to download for educational purposes. I have been slowly replacing mediafire links - we used to share the folders on mediafire and id/pw - unfortunately someone entered and killed the whole site of thousands of resources .... lesson learned. Sometimes too much sharing isn't good.
