Great Website for Educator's
The movie Nim's Island is getting ready to come out, so I got the book Nim's Island by Wendy Orr from the library today. Then I went to this website http://www.walden.com/. Next click on the teach link and then Nim's Island. You can then download and print out an educator guide and free poster to go along with the movie. The educator's guide says the activities are recommended for grades 2-5 and meet national standards in English/Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Visual Arts, and Character Education. In addition to Nim's Island, there are several other movies that you can print out educator guides and posters for. I was very impressed and wish I knew about this sooner.
