Assignment for Grade 7

Assignment for Grade 7

Dear parents and students,

For the coming long weekend students need to watch the ‘Home’ documentary. The documentary is available on YouTube and link for the same is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqxENMKaeCU&t=3230s.

A questionnaire is shared with you which you need to attempt after or during watching the documentary. The link for the questionnaire document is https://docs.google.com/document/d/1VzqeQ0tYkzo3reWqpjQooHOwdg2SJYSTfK_hNobgtAI/edit.

The students need to submit the answers in the Google Classroom.

About the documentary:

The film, produced by the brilliant and ecology-minded French director Luc Besson, is the work of acclaimed aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, whose cinematography, covering landscapes in 54 countries, provides a journey you’ll never be able to experience anywhere else. Bertrand’s views of Earth from above are so powerfully exquisite they will bring you to tears.

Nut, along with its enthralling images, the film delivers alarming statistics about climate change and how quickly it is transforming our beautiful planet into a place that will be uninhabitable. Glenn Close does a beautiful job with the English language narration, Salma Hayek voices the Spanish version and other ecology-minded actors contribute the French and other language editions. They’re all available online.

The documentary is intended to spur you to sustainable behavior, and ends with some instruction about how you can help conserve our Home.

The reason why the film named as Home, although it’s actually extra-terrestrial in its point of view, is because “the word ‘home’ has the same meaning in all cultures, all languages. It is a place that people of all ages–even little kids–can identify and love. It is central to their sense of themselves. Earth is the only ‘home’ we have, so we must care for it that way.”

This is a must see film, especially for kids. Well, and parents, too. And, yes, any and everyone who thinks about what the future holds for our species and all the others that share our Home.
