The Karate Kid Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG – 1984)
The Karate Kid Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG – 1984) challenges students to think critically about the events and decisions in Daniel LaRusso’s life. Ask students to describe how Daniel could’ve made better choices that would’ve avoided some of the conflicts he found himself in the middle of, especially the ones that he had a part in instigating. Compare the karate ideologies between Mr. Miyagi and John Kreese.
Note: This The Karate Kid Movie Guide is for the original 1984 version.
This product includes:
- A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
- An answer key (4 pages) is included, however, some answers will vary as students are encouraged to construct their own meaning throughout the film and many questions are open-ended.
- A Google Slides Version of the Movie Guide
- A generic movie guide permission slip (1 page)
- CCSS alignment indicating standards met, PDF (1 page – see also preview image)
- CCSS Note: I’ve taken the liberty of aligning certain reading standards with the act of consuming content via the movie instead. Although students aren’t reading they are asked to perform the same cognitive functions on the content that they consumed from the movie.
Distance Learning Tips:
- Distribute the digital PDF file or the google slides version to each student
- Use the screen sharing tool on your group call software to play the movie
- Pause the movie at each question to give students time to write/discuss
