How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

My entire classroom is decorated with Star Wars characters from the whole series from the original trilogy to the prequels and Clone Wars and Rebels. Last summer I was awarded a Lilly Endowment Creativity grant to build my own R2-M5 Astromech droid which I now have in my classroom as well. I have a robotics club after school as well. I use Star Wars in the classroom for mainly social studies cross curricular lessons and activities. I am using the Kilroy lesson this week as we are talking about propaganda in the revolutionary time period. This site is going to be awesome for next year as I recently discovered it and it is the end of the school year for us.
