Dolphin Tale 2 Curriculum Review
Rarely do I get excited about a new homeschooling program since my crew are all in high school. That said, I AM EXCITED about The Homeschool Movie Club. Wow..
They create curriculum to go along with movies! Yeah.. pretty exciting when you think about it. I was asked to review the Dolphin Tale 2 Homeschool curriculum and I have to say that it was of course awesome because it is about the new release this week; but it was also really informative and detailed.
The lessons were video based and included a downloadable worksheet with questions about the lesson.
This package had five (5) video lessons covering:
Lesson 1: Get To Know Dolphins: Anatomy and Physical Science
Lesson 2: A Day In The Life Of Dolphins
Lesson 3: Dolphins In The Ocean
Lesson 4: Aquarium Life
Lesson 5: Dolphins and Us
Answer Key for worksheets and questions

And in case you have been living under a rock.. the Dolphin Tale 2 is scheduled to be released nationally on September 12, 2014. Check your local theaters for special homeschool day show times and prices.
About the movie:
Inspired by true events, Dolphin Tale 2 continues the story of the brave dolphin Winter, whose miraculous rescue and recovery—thanks to a groundbreaking prosthetic tail—made her a symbol of hope and perseverance to people around the world and inspired the 2011 family hit movie “Dolphin Tale.” This film reunites the entire main cast, led by Harry Connick Jr., Oscar winner Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Kris Kristofferson, and of course, the remarkable dolphin Winter as herself. Champion surfer Bethany Hamilton, who has been an example of courage, also appears in the film.
It has been several years since young Sawyer Nelson and the dedicated team at the Clearwater Marine Hospital, headed by Dr. Clay Haskett, rescued Winter. With the help of Dr. Cameron McCarthy, who developed a unique prosthetic tail for the injured dolphin, they were able to save her life. Yet their fight is not over. Winter’s surrogate mother, the very elderly dolphin Panama, has passed away, leaving Winter without the only pool mate she has ever known. However, the loss of Panama may have greater repercussions for Winter, who, according to USDA regulations, cannot be housed alone, as dolphins’ social behavior requires them to be paired with other dolphins. Time is running out to find a companion for her before the team at Clearwater loses their beloved Winter to another aquarium.

I adored The Dolphin Tale and was tickled pink to hear they were doing another. I think one if our favorite parts is that the homeschool gal isn’t portrayed as weird. Plus I lIke seeing quality films the kids and we can enjoy as a family.
