Documentary writing

How do you get a six years old to write three pages of notes by herself? Easily.  

M wanted to play school. I wanted to watch and return the Netflix movie how to train a dragon. How about, this class is to watch a movie and take notes on how to train a dragon?


Two and a half hours later, because we had to hit paused many times, both M and G made three pages of notes each on the movie. G is still feeding off his index card note taking experience and made forty something numbered points about the story. M wrote three pages of text. We all enjoyed the movie on top of all that.
