Dolphin Tale 2 Curriculum and Prize Pack Giveaway

Friday, September 12th is the day!
Dolphin Tale 2 is coming to a theater near you! 




I think every kid in the world is fascinated by dolphins. Hey, I'm fascinated by dolphins. Every time I go to beach, I scan the horizon in hopes of seeing a pod of dolphins swimming by. It's one of those things that makes your day when it does happen and always makes you anticipate the next chance you'll get to spot dolphins when it doesn't.

My son is so enthralled with dolphins, so it was very cool to find curriculum to go with the movie Dolphin Tale 2.  To be honest, I had never heard of the website Homeschool Movie Club.

There are 5 mini lessons with a short video and pdf file for each one:

Get to Know Dolphins
A Day in the Life of Dolphins
Dolphins in the Ocean
Aquarium Life
Dolphins and Us

These are easy lessons to incorporate into any homeschool science curriculum.  

What I liked best? Each lesson has activities for elementary AND middle/high school students!  Since I have students in middle school and a kindergartener, this is a really important thing for me.  

What I liked even better?  It's free!!!! 

What else is really cool? The 77 page Dolphin Tale 2 curriculum by Classical Conversations included as a free pdf file! 

Be sure to check out Homeschool Movie Club to find out if they have curriculum to go with your favorite movies!  There is a painless registration that you will need to complete before you can access the resources.  



What's the movie all about:

"It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson (Gamble) and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett (Connick, Jr.), rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy (Freeman), who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. 

Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only poolmate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have even greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium."

From Homeschool Movie Club website:  

"Let’s Celebrate Homeschool Day 2014!

Homeschoolers made a huge difference for the first Dolphin Tale movie.  When our groups and communities showed up en masse to catch the matinée screenings on opening day, we caught Hollywood’s attention, helping make the original film a box office success and enabling Dolphin Tale 2 to be produced.



Inspiring and heartfelt family movies like Dolphin Tale 2 are only produced when we come together as a group and support them on opening day.  We are celebrating HOMESCHOOL DAY 2014 on Friday, September 12, to support Dolphin Tale 2."


Check out your local theater for special matinee performances on opening day, September 12th!
