Luke Skywalker was a farm boy from the planet Tatooine. He farmed moisture. It's an out of this world concept that is a creative jumping point for middle school students to start defining farming and agriculture. This got me thinking and expanding into the Star Wars universe for different agriculture themes. Modifying a few of the Project Wild Lessons I created the Star Wars Packet. This packet is a week long unit for when I go on National Convention or National Land and Range trips. Its a broad overview of some of the things I will expand on and cover in my high school agriculture classes.
The last pages of the packet help teach about horse gaits. This takes the packet from Star Wars to Monty Python as the students bang coconut halves together to replicate horse gaits.
