I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have heard my mother day “Everything can be a learning experience.” Seriously, she means it, LOL! That is why I came up with this simple lesson for watching a Disney movie – it is my National Treasure Movie Study!
Yes, I have a little thing for Nicholas Cage – and adore his quirky personality in his Ben Gates personality. If you aren’t familiar with the movie Benjamin Franklin Gates descends from a family of treasure-seekers who’ve all hunted for the same thing: a war chest hidden by the Founding Fathers after the Revolutionary War. Ben’s close to discovering its whereabouts, as is his competition, but the FBI is also hip to the hunt. (according to IMDB).
This movie is full of history facts, figures, and great conspiracy theories as it pulls you through the series of twists and turns as the story unfolds. That is what makes it so fun to watch and follow along!
Watch it as a family and make sure you have the study guide printed off! Get it here –> National Treasure Movie Study-min
