Welcome to Film Education's interactive resource on Frankenweenie.
This resource has three sections:
The Power of Science
This section uses the film’s message of 'the Power of Science' as the basis of a series of resources on forces and electricity - using Victor's life-giving circuits as inspiration.
The film is shot entirely in black and white. This fully interactive activity challenges children to carefully recreate the characters from the film using black and white shading only.
A range of learning activity worksheets, and the Frankenweenie Big Writing project, which takes advantage of the irresistibly quirky way the story is told on screen to inspire children to write independently and expertly in the style of the film.
After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new “leash on life” can be monstrous.
