Week 23 – Zootopia

I really wanted this movie during Black History Month, because the themes of prejudice are very obvious and provide a great springboard for discussion, especially for my child, who hasn’t been exposed to any direct prejudice.

Here is the link for the downloadable materials. (Please let me know if you have any problems so I can fix it!)
