Dear Arun.
What we did in Italy (just for a blender course) was teaching the students to 
build a film you can find here:
unfortunately is in Italian (i can do the subtitles) but as you can see the 
child learned to do the film , and at the same time about freedom, as you see 
the guy (michele) is going outside the screen searching freedom.

I think this aproach was very good for us. The group become freedom-fighter :)

warm regards
