The Secret Life of Pets Movie Guide

$4.89

This is a hilarious and cute movie that provides a great chance to introduce students to the concept of anthropomorphism and how relationships can change overtime. Journey through the movie as a class, pausing at the designated times, and discuss and answer the thought provoking questions throughout this 87 minute film. This guide has 11 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. Many answers will not fit into a ‘box’. Students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters’ dialogue and behavior.
