Extensively researched companion Teacher Resource Guides are available for most IMAX films. See our IMAX Film Library for links to individual films and individual guides. Teacher guides to additional movies are available by searching for the movie by title at Big Movie Zone. The Teacher Resource Guides are generally consistent with the National Education Science Standards and meant to be a supplement to each grade level.

These guides can be easily adapted to your curriculum and include discussion topics, exercises and hands-on group projects. IMAX films have a suggested age group in the Teacher Guides, but the activities can be modified to fit any grade level.
