Whether you’re a recent or life-long fan of Star Wars, this course is for you! We will be expanding and building our knowledge of the Star Wars universe in this course, learning about Jedi culture, the Sith and the dark side, the nature of the Force, droids, ships, planets, music and so much more! Through games, arts and crafts, research, debating, acting and performance, strategic and creative thinking, quizzes, and more fun activities, we will explore the breadth and diversity of the Star Wars universe, and understand what real life lessons we can learn from our favourite characters, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
