The Panwapa Movie Play-Along offers an opportunity for your student to view short films (about 3-4 minutes each) about real kids and their experiences in different parts of the world. The topics of the films focus on access to different resources, including safe water, food, and education. In watching these films, viewers are exposed to the idea that kids from around the world have the same basic needs, but live in different economic conditions. Hosted by Bill the Bug, this interactive activity allows your student to play along and find moments in each film that highlight something special about the Panwapa Kid's experience.

Following each short film is a series of questions that you can use to stimulate a discussion with your students.
