This week in class, we’re reading “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury.
In Ray Bradbury’s short story “The Veldt,” Mr. and Mrs. Hadley become concerned when they realize how dependent their children are on the technology in their futuristic home.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Friendship & Family and Technology, Progress & Industry as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
“What are the costs and benefits of technology?” and “What makes a family?”
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this science fiction at home:
- What was “The Veldt” about?
- What did you learn about? About Technology, Progress & Industry?
- Watch the following clips with your child at home:
