This Moana Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG – 2016) challenges students to analyze Disney’s powerful coming of age story. Explore Moana’s decisions and purpose, as well as the catchy tunes in the crowd pleasing feel film. Ponder the lessons that can be learned from this adventurous tale of a courageous young girl who saves her people.

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 : )

Digital Version Tips

  • It is intended for a paperless, 1:1 tablet/iPad classroom
  • 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.
  • Host the file. I used google drive to share a folder with students.
  • When complete, ask students to save the file in a designated google drive folder using a naming convention. (I use LastnameFirstnameMovieGuide.pdf)
