Thank you, oh thank you, Homeschool Movie Club, for posting this! If you are reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo like our family and getting uber-excited about its movie premiere on Christmas day, then you'll definately be interested in a middle school/high school curriculum tie-in for the book/film, written by Sherri Seligson. Sherri is a marine biologist and writer of Apologia's Marine Biology curriculum, who also blessed us with a curriculum for Dolphin Tale a few months back. She's back with more goodies for us.
We are a few chapters away from finishing the book, enjoying our lastest installment on the fishing dock this week. The boys baited their hooks and I dried my eyes as we read about Joey the horse and his journey through many owners, both German and English, both harsh and kind, during the horrors of World War I.
Check out the free War Horse curriculum here.
Check out the trailer for the movie, opening 12/25/11 at a theatre near you.....
