For the Birds~ Approx. 3-min. Disney Pixar video that shows the social behavior of a flock of tiny birds, and how they respond to a newcomer. In the end, the bullies' behavior causes them to lose their feathers and feel embarrassed that they are "naked." Good introduction for a discussion of inference, cause and effect , bullying, or peer group pressure.
Pixar Short Film: For the Birds (This one is great for the beginning of the year, especially to infer important ideas about friendships, tolerance, bullying, and more. Great "moral to the story.")

The Actual '73 Giving Tree Movie Spoken By Shel Silverstein: This is one of the most beautiful books in my opinion. In all of its simplicity meant to be read to children, it is more than enough to make you cry. This is so relevant. This is so universal.
