May the fourth is coming, do you have any special plans for your students? Over the years we have had the pleasure of reading Star Wars books in school, participating in cross curricular activities and enjoying special “Stars Wars Days.” In this post I would like to explore some ideas for celebrating May the 4th.
Star Wars Themed Door Decorating: Kids love making themselves into mini Darth Vaders, Luke Sky Walkers and Princess Leia. We have students use Death Star Themes, JEDI and my favorite, the Yoda Door. All the kids to come with and idea and each student can customize their door Avatar.
Sith Versus Jedi Challenges: Split up your students into two groups. The Sith (bad guys) and the Jedi. Give your students simple academic challenges or play a game like kickball. Who ever wins will rule the universe.
Jedi Training: Jedi’s require skill and ability to use the force. Walking on balance beams, crossing swamps, there are a variety of opportunities here.
Interested in some more? Over the years I have incorporated many of these ideas into the following products.
