  At the Movies !


Welcome to At the Movies! where we explore some of the most amazing movies ever made. Movies represent a rich means by which we can learn about culture, society, language, and much more. Here at the Liberty Academy, we believe it is worthwhile to examine films beyond their entertainment value. For parents and educators, movies serve as an exciting medium through which higher level thinking and learning can occur for our students. That being said, have a look at some of our movie choices below, feel free to customize the lessons, and join in on the fun!
