Beautiful film for a wide range of abilities and ages. I love the themes of kindness and inclusion. I am using it today to practise using present continuous but it will have many uses for further language development. The quiz would be helpful for younger and less able students too.

Thanks so much for making this available free of charge! My son is on the autism spectrum and he has a hard time understanding wh questions so this worksheet helps a lot. Many thanks and blessings to you!
