Madagascar 3: Life-Changing Events







This is a wonderful scene with a touching and inspiring message. It is a great to tool to help your students share moments or happenings that changed their lives or personality.



I. Work with a partner. Rank the events below from 1 to according to how drastically they can change someone's life. Make sure you explain your choices (1 not drastically at all / 5 very drastically)

I. OPINION DICTATION:

Your teacher will dictate some events. Use a blank sheet of paper and divide it into 3 columns with the headings below. Write them down in in the column you believe applies to you. Don't show your answers to your peers. Then group up with a few partners, share and compare your list, and say why and how your life would change (have changes) under those circumstances.
