Howdy, folks! Last week's Celebrity Lesson Plans with Harrison Ford -- and many others submitted by awesome readers -- proved to be a lot of fun, so here we are doing it again!
This week, I'm choosing Tom Hanks as the teacher, so here is how I think his typical lesson plan would look:
Language Arts -- Write an essay on whether being "Big" is really worth it
Math -- Houston, we have a word problem
Social Studies: Cultural legends of East Coast America (notably mermaids)
Science -- Don't throw away those toys! The dangers of petroleum-based plastics in landfills
History -- The hell of World War II
Social Skills Teachable Moment -- There's no crying in baseball!!
P.E. -- Proper care and respect for your volleyball
Art -- Earth-shattering, world-changing clues in works by da Vinci, Picasso, and Suess
Music -- Practice for PTO meeting -- 99 types of shrimp on the wall
If anyone wants to play, leave a comment saying you're in, and I'll
assign you a celebrity to try. Just be sure to link back to the LMG
page so we can all see what you came up with!
