Summer Learning Journey - Week 2 - Day 2 - Activity 1

For the Summe Learning Journey activity I had to watch a movie trailer called Gold Rush. After we had watch the trailer we had to write what we think about the movie. This movie contains no dialog. We also have write if we would enjoy watching a silent film.

In the trailer it shows a lot of characters and each character has its own unqie role. I think the movie is about these unique characters going on adventures and chasing dreams. I wouldnt watch this movie because the quality is terrible. I dont think I could watch a whole video with no dialog.


  1. Hi Ofa,

    Ruby here from the Summer Learning Journey team!

    Good thinking about this activity. The quality is not quite the same as movies today. But you have to remember that this was ground-breaking technology at the time! Films were first made around 1890 and this movie was only made 35 years later in 1925.

    But I agree that I couldn't watch silent movies. I would like to watch one perhaps just to try it, but I definitely wouldn't want to watch them very often. What sorts of movies do you like to watch?

    I look forward to reading more of your blog.

  2. Hello Ofa
    Great job on completing this summer learning journey activity. I also think I wouldn't be able to watch a movie with no speaking as I probably wouldn't understand what the characters are doing or what they are saying if they are having a conversation. Keep up the amazing work Ofa.
