Undoubtedly, Disney lesson plans make learning even the most boring subjects fun!
Indeed, almost everyone I know loves Disney! Moreover, 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 equals making learning fun, which then makes teachers and parents happy. However, when looking for resources I found that they are all over the place.
