Search over 100 movie guides for students and deliver quality learning experiences for every movie viewing.

Hi there, I’m TeacherTravis. I’ve been an educator for over 10 years. Throughout that time, I’ve averaged about 3 movie viewings per year. After unsuccessfully searching for quality supplemental materials, I decided to create my own, so my students could connect on a deep level with the stories in each film. I created this site to provide high-level questions that are thought provoking and valuable for young minds. When I use a movie guide I’ve seen significantly better results from my students. Hollywood packs life-lessons throughout each film. However, due to the fast pace of these movies, most learning opportunities soar right over their heads. These movie guides cue teachers exactly when to pause the movie. Hence, giving students plenty of time to digest and create meaning from the content.

Click here to see this product's reviews on TeachersPayTeachers. Please note: This movie is based loosely on Polynesian mythology. It received some bad press for not being accurate enough in the way the islanders and their gods are portrayed. If you are sensitive to this, I suggest using it as a teaching tool and asking your students to compare the movie to the real history. Perhaps do a short unit on Polynesian history so the record is clear for your students. It may be worth it to have a classroom discussion about movies that are based on real life events and how they shouldn't be considered the historical authority for that event. Note: If you like Hamilton and Lin-Manuel Miranda's genius then you'll enjoy the original songs he wrote for the movie. If your a super Hamilton fan, the style is unmistakable. I had flashbacks from Hamilton while watching this film : ) Also check out the Moana Bundle and Save 35%: Moana Movie & Music Video Guide Bundle  The bundle includes: Moana Movie Viewing Guide - Print and Digital Versions (4 pages) How Far I'll Go - Moana - Music Video & Song Lyrics Lesson Plan (3 pages) You're Welcome - Moana - Music Video & Song Lyrics Lesson Plan (3 pages) Shiny - Moana - Music Video & Song Lyrics Lesson Plan (3 pages)
