I have a crazy question – my boys (7 & 6) are really wanting to do a Star Wars Lapbook. (By the way, for those of you who have asked about how we do lapbooks – I have a post all ready for the presses over at The Heart of the Matter Online – I’ll let you know when it publishes) They’ve loved Star Wars since their daddy introduced them to it when the oldest was 3! We edit them with the fast forward button as we see fit and we’ve talked about every aspect of the good vs. bad. We’ve talked about character traits and how even the smallest decisions we make can lead us to Christ or away.
They draw every scene and hum the theme. They have sparring matches. It has entered every part of our school and I’m begging the homeschool/Star Wars geek community to step forward and help with links, templates, and ideas. I will pull it together and submit it here, if you don’t mind, when I hear from everybody.
I’ll probably update this and recycle this begging post so that maybe strangers out there who (like us) do searches for “Star Wars” and “Star Wars Activities” will leave me a comment and direct me to great kid-related places. We’ve already found a couple that we like, but I know there are more out there. And I’m going to try to alter some of the information into lapbook components.
To kick this off (and inspire you!) I’ll leave you with a picture my 7 year old drew (did not trace) from a “follow directions to draw” Star Wars post. So, please, please send me your links for great kids’ Star Wars sites and activities!
