For our  Six Cs of Education Unit we have chosen the Pixar short film For the Birds (3:25) as one of our ways to represent communication.

This movie has no spoken parts but shows the power of non-verbal communication.  The messages that can be sent through simply using body language and facial expression.  This film reminds us how much we can share with people without ever saying a word.

Recommendation: Have class watch the movie once with no prompts.  The second time through have them write down times when they noticed a message was being sent (ie. non-verbal communication), and what they think that message was.

Communication Lesson plan Discussion Ideas:

  • When are times that we use non-verbal communication?
  • Why would we choose this method?
  • What are some different messages we can send non-verbally?
