NOTICE AND NOTE - MEMORY MOMENT - "Lily and the Snowman"

A MEMORY MOMENT happens when the author interrupts the action to tell or reflect on a memory. A memory moment can help you understand why characters do what they do. Ask yourself: Why is this memory important? How does this explain why the character is acting in a certain way? Memory Moments often reveal something about a character's inner CONFLICT or if the memory keeps happening over and over again, the lesson learned from it is often the THEME. 1. Watch the animated short movie, LILY and the SNOWMAN. 2. Write your response in the note attached to this lesson. 3. Don't forget to explain your thoughts and thinking. Challenge: Can you find other examples of the signposts in the video?
