VIDEOS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND-

        Parents please check ratings. Some movies are rated R for violent content. Please watch the movie and make your educated decision based on your knowledge of your child.

     Hollywood will always spin movies to get viewership, they're making movies to make money. While all movies do not necessarily follow history accurately, they sometimes help to put visuals to learned information, helping you to absorb more.  Movies to add spice to your learning and understanding:

The New World (2005) -Pocahontas

Desperate Crossings (History Channel)                             -The Crucible (1996)

Last of the Mohicans (R- parent view 1st and decide)  

-1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992)

Amistad -suggested to find a pg version. This movie is very intense in its R version.

If you cannot find Amistad in a pg/tv version, THE Middle Passage Documentary by Steven Spielberg, free view on the Internet, will also help you and your child understand this sad & sinister era of our human history.
