My daughters are huge fans of the movie The Jungle Book. I mean HUGE fans. They ask me to rewatch it all the time.
Because I’m a child of the 80s, I was initially resistant to the idea of The Jungle Book being remade. Cartoon Baloo singing “The Bare Necessities” is good stuff.
But once I sat down and watched it with them, I could understand the appeal. It’s a great film. And it’s also an excellent opportunity to learn a thing or two.
So I’m sharing a printable The Jungle Book movie study that you can use with your kids while you watch this film. After all, if they’re going to watch something over and over again, they might as well learn something, right?
Keep reading to see how to grab this printable for your kids! I’m sure they’ll love it as much as mine do.

Printable The Jungle Book Movie Study for Kids
To use this The Jungle Book movie study, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
In this movie study, you’ll find four learning printables that include both ELA and science concepts.
By the way, if you’re doing a jungle unit study, this would be a perfect add-on activity, particularly if you include the original book by Rudyard Kipling as a read-along.
An answer key is included in the study for two of the activities, but I wanted to keep the discussion questions more open-ended. If the kids don’t get the answers “right”, encourage them to rewatch it and find out what they missed.
There are 13 discussion questions included in the study. For younger children, you might just discuss the questions and answers together. Older kids can write or type their answers. Or you could just sit on the floor and talk about it as a family.
Kids will love to learn some cool facts about tigers in the Tiger learning activity.
But The Jungle Book has more than just tigers in it! With the Animals of Jungle Book printable, they’ll get to test their knowledge about animal diets to figure out which animals eat what.
Circling back to the film, the Character analysis worksheet lets the kids come up with their own ways to describe the principal characters of the movie. This is a great ELA activity for story retelling!
Don’t forget to use the Answer Key at the back so the kids can check their responses!
