Disney lesson plans make learning even the most boring subjects fun!
Almost everyone I know loves Disney! It seems that if your students and/or your own children are like mine, they love anything and everything Disney. In reality, it’s not just kids, but adults too! In turn, love = making learning fun = making teachers and parents happy. However, when looking for resources I found that they are all over the place. Since I don’t want to have to search every time I would like a Disney resource, I decided to gather the best and list them here by type. In any event, I hope you find them as helpful and fun as I do! Indeed, you’re never too young (or too old!) to love Mickey and other wonderful characters, so why not make learning fun by incorporating them into your lessons and activities?
First, definitely check out Disney Educational Productions for award-winning classroom media that enhances learning and unlocks student creativity. These are fabulous educational resources for elementary through high school students! Subsequently, here is an extensive list of links that you can explore to bring Disney into your lessons. I hope you enjoy them, and would love to hear of any I missed, so please leave a comment below!
