What’s better, the movie or the book? I think in most cases it’s the book for a variety of reasons. Often the movie cuts many important aspects out or simply doesn’t get it. There are many examples of this but one that comes to my mind is Eragon from the Inheritance Cycle series. Great book, terrible movie. However, I’ve seen it go the other way where the movie is at least as good as book. Lord of the Rings rings a bell as does The Chamber of Secrets from the Harry Potter series.
For our purposes as well as the purpose of this worksheet, I don’t think it matters. By having your students compare the movie and the book, you will foster creative thinking and allow them to develop the analytical skills needed in life. It’s not just about comparing movies to books, it’s about analyzing information and learning to critique.
This resource I feel can be used across grade and subject levels effectively. The original article can be found at Nyla’s Crafy Teaching or by CLICKING HERE and an example worksheet can be downloaded from Rachel Lynette TpT store by CLICKING HERE. Happy comparing!
