Scholastic Releases Lesson Plans for War Horse

Okay, I interrupt this series of posada-related resources to share with you another great resource from Scholastic. I'm not sure if you know about Steven Spielberg's latest epic-adventure, War Horse, but I'm already making plans in my head to go and see it. The film, first published in 1982, is based on the young adult novel by Michael Morpurgo. Dreamworks Pictures' War House is set to be in theaters on December 25th.
To give you an idea of what it is about, here's a sneak peek:

My children are probably still too young to see this film, but for those of you with older kids, why not take advantage of the opportunity to use this movie as an educational resource? To make it even easier for you, Scholastic has created a Teacher's Guide for grades 8 - 12 on using historical fiction in the classroom. Their site includes lessons, printables, the trailer you see above, and a fun, interactive game (I am an Eagle!).

After seeing the trailer above, I was sold and plan to head to the theater with my box of Kleenex in hand. I hope you all have the opportunity to see it as well.

Have a great weekend!
