It is a very well known fact that I am nothing if not a massive Disney nut! I love everything about Disney and the Pixar branch of the studios is no exception. From their shorts to their full-length features, there is a wonderful lesson to be learned.
Pixar’s short film “For The Birds” teaches viewers a fantastic lesson on bullying. Check it out!
Here we have a group of birds choosing to shun an outsider. From there they learn, a bit too late, that their actions against someone else can have some pretty serious consequences for them!
This video can be used in a number of ways to teach a lesson to students (even adults) about the consequences of bullying!
Have you used this video in class? I’d love to hear the results in the comments section below!
