Solving problems is a skill.

The Martian.  Everybody is talking about this book and the movie.  I want to say that I really loved how the movie went the extra mile to establish that it's all about problem solving.  It's obviously a huge part of the book and the movie, but I think it's really helpful for young people to see that laid out as a lesson at the very end - break it down, work the problems. 

I think it's a fun movie that captures the spirit of the book (if not the breadth of the problems in the book), the educator in me likes that tag a lot.  I loved the Hunger Games books for the lessons they were able to successfully sneak in about the completely false nature of reality television.  Kids need to hear this stuff, and this kind of media is a great way to deliver the lesson so it doesn't feel like a lesson.
