5th grade movies ideas

I would like to show a G rated movie to my class as a reward they voted on. I am not one to show movies and need some G rated ideas that may work in a 5th grade class. Let me know what you have shown or what your kids like.

What about looking for titles of books that are appropriate that have been made into movies? The Incredible Journey, Sign of the Beaver.....

I show Disney's Swiss Family Robinson to my 5th graders every year and they love it! Most have never seen it, and although it's old and a little cheesy, they really enjoy it. Rated G.

What about Summer of the Monkeys? It's a Disney movie based on the book by Wilson Rawls, the same author who wrote Where the Red Fern Grows. My students love it, and no one has seen it before.

These are all great: The Ugly Dachshund, Parent Trap (original), That Darn Cat (original), Apple Dumpling Gang

There is also a fantastic movie titled "On Our Own" from Feature Films for Families that my students love.

Almost guaranteed that they haven't seen these

I show my class Ironwill. It has a little of evrything:adventure and drama and such a great ending that the students cheer. It's a disney movie. I've used it for the past 3 years as a class reading reward. You can also incorporate core curriculum into the discussion of the movie.

We tie ours into the curriculum, but these are still fun for the kids to watch anyway.

Ferngully--This is great as a follow-up for an ecosystem unit. Could work well after a biome unit, too.

An American Tail--We use this after our immigration unit each year.

Fieval Goes West--We've used this in the past after our Westward Expansion unit.

Pocohantas--We show this after our Native American unit.

The Pagemaster-- Live action that turns into an animated fantasy. It has a literature theme since there are books as the main characters. Macauley Calkin is the main star--starts out real, becomes an animated boy for most of the movie. I showed this last year at the end of the year.

The Lorax--We use this to go with our Using Earth's Resources Wisely Unit.
