How I Use Star Wars in the Classroom

I am a science teacher who teaches Earth space science to 8th grade students. During our unit on space and planets I take advantage of starwars settings ships space travel and apply them to the real world. I used the opportunity to compare planets with Star Wars locations. We even talked about President Reagan's Star Wars program and mention how he named it after the movie. Finally to culminate our space unit we build 2 liter bottle rockets and launch them. I have made it my mission throughout the years to design star wars based rockets of my own because the children love to see that.
