Kung Fu Panda 3 Movie Guide


Kung Fu Panda 3 is an epic journey about “You becoming you!” and is an underrated educational movie. Students quickly identify with and fall in love with the Po, the main character, and can learn the lessons of self-confidence and determination that he does throughout the movie.   Journey through the movie as a class, pause at the designated times, and then discuss  12 high-level short answer and essay questions in this 4 page PDF movie guide. See additional pictures in the product gallery for example questions.

This Kung Fu Panda 3 movie guide is a must have if you are showing this movie in class. The movie guide consists of a 4 page PDF document with 12 high-level short answer and essay questions. An answer key is not included as many questions are open-ended and encourage students to analyze the film by constructing their own meaning from the characters’ dialogue and behavior. Please see the product images for example questions.

This product includes:
A student movie guide, PDF print version (4 pages)
A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (4 pages)

The digital version is for a paperless classroom if your students each have a tablet/iPad. Here is a method that worked for me:

1. Ask students to download a PDF editor app if they don’t already have one. It needs to have a save function as well. I used Foxit PDF.
2. Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with the students.
3. After students have completed the movie guide, ask them to save it in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)

Here are my tips for using this Kung Fu Panda 3 movie guide in your classroom:

  1. Print one, double-sided movie guide for each student
  2. Preview each question on the movie guide as you come to it before resuming the movie
  3. Pause at the times designated on the movie guide and help students if necessary
    • Discussion here is great, encourage and allow students to share their ideas and thoughts for any question
    • Discourage students from simply copying answers
    • If needed, and if time allows, feel free to rewind and show important parts of the movie for additional analysis
  4. After completing the short answers on the movie guide, allow 5-10 minutes for each essay question at the end
  5. On average, completing this movie guide will require about 30-45 minutes in addition to the length of the movie
