Learning with Star Wars (and a huge giveaway)!

If you haven’t noticed ~ I try to incorporate everything my children like into their education.  It sure makes for excited fun learners!

We’ve used great books for Notebooking opportunities: Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and How to Train Your Dragon.  We’ve used great books to teach Geography – Percy Jackson adventures are always traveling!  We’ve also used Harry Potter books for some fun crafts and animal science lesson we couldn’t find on Pinterest.

Learning with Star Wars!

Obviously astronomy and Star Wars go hand in hand! Even though we will not be flying to Naboo – we might cruise around other planets and learn about the ones in our own solar system.
