Before the Movie


What have you seen or read about the ozone layer?

What do you think the ozone layer is and what do you think is happening to it?


During the Movie (Pause Points)


Stop at the following times in the movie and ask questions or prompt a discussion to keep students focused and to assess their understanding before moving on:


Timecode 0:42: How might too much UV radiation affect individuals and communities?

Timecode 2:16: What can you deduce about why CFCs were used in household appliances?

Timecode 2:44: What will happen if CFC production is set back in motion? 


After the Movie


How can your family or community help fight the destruction of the ozone layer? 


BrainPOP recommends reading  the movie description that appears on the Ozone Layer Topic Page to your class. Then show the movie once through without pausing. Watch it again, this time using the discussion prompts.
