Bao Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG - 2018)

This Bao Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG - 2018) challenges students to unpack the powerful concepts bundled into this award winning animated short film by Domee Shi. Students compare their own relationships with their parents to the whimsically realistic relationship between Bao and his ‘mother’. Task students with determining the Chinese cultural elements of the story and thinking about how they would be replaced if the story’s setting was their own home. Give your students a unique glimpse into life from a mother’s perspective and the struggle they face as their children become independent.

This resource consists of 6 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information.

This product .zip file includes:

  • A student movie guide, PDF print version (3 pages)
  • A student movie guide, PDF digital fillable form version (3 pages)
    *An answer key is included with this movie guide, however many answers will vary as students are encouraged to construct their own meaning from the characters’ dialogue and behavior. See the preview for samples.
