Do you feel like you don't fit a certain mold and you need to break free?

Sometimes the underdog shows us we need to think differently and challenge the status quo in our lives. In The Longshots, Jasmine is a girl who doesn't seem to fit in at school, but with the help of her Uncle Curtis she finds a place to belong on the town's Pop Warner football team.

The Longshots Companion Activities teaches us about breaking down stereotypes, the power of second chances, and the importance strong family and community relationships.

In order to complete these activities students will need to watch the movie The Longshots, which has a rating of PG and a run time of 1 hour and 35 minutes.
