CRR - Watership Down

So in my government class with Ms. Horne, we watched a movie about rabbits called Watership Down. It was about a bunch of rabbits who were looking for a home. Seems simple right ? Uh, NO. That was the most complicated movie I have ever watched. Half the time I had no idea about what was going on. The events in the movie were occurring so quickly that we had to watch the movie about 3 times to understand bits and pieces of it. Yes, 3 times.

We were then assigned a project to do. We had to create a leadership book about the movie. Basically we had to answer questions given to us, and make a book out of them. That task is actually harder than it sounds. Even though I saw the movie 3 times, I still found myself researching answers to the questions. I had no clue half of those things even happened in the movie. Anyway, that wasn't the hardest part. It was actually illustrating the book. I tried to get every detail right and I'm no artist, so that was super difficult for me. And then we have to color it too ! I haven't had this much work to do since I started senior year. My college applications were simpler than this project. Thankfully, I'm almost done, all I have left to do is color my drawings. and paste the last two answers into the book. Unfortunately, I don't have a printer or color pencils at home. If I don't get this in by 4th period on Tuesday, I'm screwed. Anyway. I'm working on it.

  1. You know it was a book before it was a movie? How does all of this actually connect to governments?
