We have a lot of Pixar short animations + full lessons for them all.  They are really fun to use in class and motivate students like nothing else. 

Here is a powerpoint with many of these videos (find all in this folder for download) + answers to the worksheet attached that you can provide students to complete either during or after watching together. Here are more in this category of resources. 

You can use many of these suggested activities for using these silent videos in the classroom

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!

You'll love this easy to use, super friendly powerpoint of 5 of the best best best animated shorts out there.

Just play the ppt and get students to write down their answers in groups. Give points for correct answers and correct with the powerpoint. Extend the conversation about each video short with higher levels. Lots to talk about!  

This one I adore - just one of the 5. Pigeon Impossible. 


Here are some extra resources to teach the short, fun animation - Pigeon Impossible (also in the above ppt, 5 animations). 

Download the video for offline viewing.

Here is a nice generic worksheet for students to fill out after watching a Pixar video short. They decide on what the theme is and then state why they think so (summarize the plot).
