This is a mini-unit to teach social justice to younger students. I show Zootopia, stopping to discuss the many social justice issues in the movie. This lesson contains a teacher's guide (so you'll know when to stop and why), a student viewing guide, and an "Easter Egg" viewing checklist for students to use as they follow along. 

Enjoy this lesson on social justice?
