Yes, we’ve heard about Endgame. We’re homeschoolers, not underground bunker dwellers! (Well, most of us aren’t, at least.) What better way to celebrate the movie than to add some Avengers Endgame lesson plans, projects, and activities to your studies?
But first, I have to tell you . . .
There’s been a deep, dark void in my life since Infinity War came out.
I felt “dusted” inside.
(Only fans will understand that verb. It’s OK if you don’t.)
Let me catch you up to speed:
What is Avengers: Endgame?
Avengers: Endgame is the final installment of this particular movie series in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
(More money, I mean, spin-offs and films are coming out of course!)
More to come in the Marvel Cinematic Universe…
This movie ties up all the loose ends in the lives of our beloved, beleaguered team of superheroes!
Just think of all your Marvel hero favorites- (sans X-Men- they got their own stuff coming out soon)- and now take away 50% of them with a single snap!
But who would do such a horrid, unthinkable thing?
He’s pretty much the most unbeatable super-villain ever to exist.
It’s weird, at times, I see his logic.
He’s just trying to restore balance in the world. He’s not a maniac. He’s just got his own methods and worldview.
Methods that include eliminating half of all living creatures–on Earth and everywhere.
Don’t you just love a “How are they going to get outta this one?” moment in a movie!?
Which brings us to Avengers: Endgame.
I’ve seen it, and because I’m not “Thanos” I won’t spoil it for you.
I will just say: Our family is at peace now.

Why Teach From Movies and Add Avengers Endgame to Your Learning?
Movies provide ample teaching moments.
I’ll never forget discussing how George Lucas portrayed good versus evil in Star Wars in my Senior Honors English class.
(Thus solidifying my understanding on how to use and create “archetypes” in stories.)
My 7th grader and I have spent so much time talking all about Avengers:
- Character development
- Possible plot twists, scenarios
- How we’d finish the series
- Our favorite scenes (and why they’re our favorite)
And on and on.
It’s fun to lose yourself in a story and that’s one of the reason using movies in learning is a great idea!
(Just like with books!)
All the conversations surrounding your students’ favorite films are lessons in disguise waiting to be taught.

Dare I say it, these movies are our children’s version of Star Wars.
They’ve grown up with the saga and that’s special.
Let’s capitalize on this as homeschoolers and learn together!
