This movie is based on the classic book about Wilbur the pig and his friendship with a spider that tries to save him from slaughter.
This movie is rated G and the website Common Sense Media (www.CommonSenseMedia.org) recommends it for ages 5 and up with 5 stars for quality, so I think it would be very appropriate to have my students watch it.
Use in Class
Because the book is on a 4th/5th grade reading level, this would make the classic story accessible to all of my students. In addition, it would provide another medium for us to discuss fantasy. This movie would be used during the reflection phase of PAR.
