These Star Wars learning activities are fun for Star Wars Day (May the 4th be with you!) and they are also great for any day of the year.
Many kids really get into Star Wars. We go through phases of * all Star Wars, all the time * at my house and we make the most of it. We listen to the music, watch the movies, build LEGO Star Wars and have a lot of light saber duels.
I was thinking about the number of boys I know who just love Star Wars and decided to try to find some learning activities as part of our Star Wars Homeschool Unit Study series.
I think these are all winners. Look through and find what works best for your kids. There are light sabers, carbonite, and plenty of Star Wars ideas to keep you all having fun (and learning!) for a long time.

Homeschool Unit Study: Star Wars
Star Wars Bookmaking. This is actually an article on handwriting practice but I am keen on the create your own story idea. Write and illustrate your own Star Wars book.
Star Wars Word Run gets kids moving and learning some Star Wars words along the way. Can be adjusted for different ages by adding harder words, or having them spell them instead of just running to them.
There are several different ways to play Light Saber Math. You can use addition or subtraction as well as counting, sorting, skip counting and more. I like the hands-on aspect of this game. Use these light sabers or make your own with colored paper and a bit of grey tape.
Find your “Star Wars Name.” This is a fun little activity to do and can add a bit of learning to your day with spelling, capitalization, and even history on how George Lucas chose names for the Star Wars characters.
This is very rudimentary and a bit difficult to play but I included it because it is a Star Wars typing game. It would be nice for someone who is already familiar with the keyboard but would like some practice—Star Wars Style.
A brief note about worksheets: Some boys love them, others hate them. You really need to know your boy and his learning styles in order to decide if these are a good choice for him. Please don’t force worksheets or any other activity if they hate it. You don’t want to make them hate learning! The point of doing these homeschool unit study projects is to have fun and learn while you are doing so.
Star Wars read, build and write cards. Useful for various ages with cute Star Wars character graphics, the child first reads the card (or you help them read it) they then use tiles or magnets to write out the name, then they can write the word at the bottom of the sheet. If they don’t like writing at this stage, maybe they would enjoy drawing the character instead. Scroll down to click on Star Wars under “fun themes.”
