Summer Learning Journey: Week 2 Day 2 Activity 1

Today I did the first activity for day 2 week 2 of the Summer Learning Journey. For this activity, we needed to watch one of these two silent film trailers, and make our prediction on what the movie is about. If you want to watch the two trailers, here are the links to them: The Lion's Cage : Gold Rush
The one I chose to watch was the Lion's Cage, and I think I have the correct answer to what the movie trailer was about. My guess as to what the movie was about is that there is a man who got trapped in a Lion Cage, and he wants to escape without awaking the lion. He tries to open the door from the inside, but instead ends up pushing the door's board lock trapping the man inside. After multiple attempts to leave, the lion wakes up from its sleep, petrifying the man. The lions wasn't alarmed or scared, so it attempts to go back to sleep. Someone then notices the man trapped, and sets him free. The End.


  1. Kia Ora Jack,

    Cadence here from the Summer Learning Journey team!

    That’s great to read you would like to watch this silent film. It would be quite a different experience. Have you heard of the actor Charlie Chaplin before?

    I thought you might enjoy listening to this inspiring speech he gave in a film. Its quite cool I think so let me know your thoughts.

    Look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Cadence :)

  2. Hi Jack
    Well done on finishing this summer learning activity. I don't really like silent films as I never really understand why the characters are doing something and when they are having a conversation, you can't tell what they are saying. Keep up the awesome work Jack!
