Week 16 – Balto

Balto seems like a fitting choice for the first movie of 2021 (the week of the 4th), both because of the cold Alaskan setting and because of the need for medicine/vaccine.

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