Look at your movie still and jot down words to describe what you see. Look up the words you don’t know in a dictionary. (a paintbrush, wallpaper, a clock, etc.)

Why would this situation be considered comedy? What makes it funny?

Let's talk this out!


Share your findings with your  classmates and learn about the other still.

Can you imagine what the characters might be saying in these situations? Write a title card for this scene.

Your time to shine!
