Writing Ideas

  • Pause the film at the point the spider monkey is rescued by her father. Role play what the animals might be thinking or saying. These could be recorded as either speech or thought bubbles.
  • Hold a debate: Should the spider monkey have climbed to the top of the canopy by herself or waited for her father?
  • Fables are short stories which illustrate a particular moral or teach a lesson. What lesson might be learned in the clip? Write an Aesop fable featuring the spider monkeys in the clip.
