In today’s My Disney Class Podcast episode, Ryan and Howie celebrate that special holiday, May 4th. That’s right, May the fourth be with you! Star Wars fans across the globe celebrate May 4th as Star Wars Day and on today’s episode, Howie and Ryan wanted to celebrate too by sharing ways that you can bring Star Wars into your classroom.
In a galaxy not too far away, Ryan and Howie have some ideas on how to bring some of that galactic magic that Lucus films, and now Disney does so well with ideas on how you can incorporate Star Wars characters, worlds, and even foods into school lesson that help teach physics, language arts, geography, and many more subjects. Examples range from high-level physics problems used to figure out the speed of a TIE Fighter to more elementary-level ideas like designing your own Star Wars character to color and create a backstory for. We believe that even if you are not a Star Wars fan, you can find inspiration in the elaborate and imaginative universe that George Lucas created back in 1976.
We hope you enjoyed our celebration of May The Fourth Be With You Day and we can’t wait to hear about all the out this-universe lessons you do or did with your students.
