We’d like to offer a Pooh-sized welcome to all new fans! We’re so glad you’ve joined us here at Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, a unique blog that plusses the homeschool experience and prompts home educators to think outside the textbook. Our posts incorporate teachable moments found in Walt Disney entertainment—from the history of Walter Elias Disney to the magic behind animation techniques and beyond—and leave readers with creative applications and suggested lesson plans for kids preschool through high school.
For instance, watch Dumbo and learn about aviation. Build a paper airplane with an elephant’s proportions. Consider if large wings (or ears) help or hinder flight. Ride Epcot’s Test Track. Design a wooden model car and put it to the performance test in a pinewood derby.
Non-homeschooling parents can employ takeaways to supplement their children’s schoolwork or to keep their kids from stagnating during summer break or other time off from class.
Classroom teachers can also utilize the blog to enhance their lesson plans and offer additional course work.
We encourage you to stretch the boundaries of your home classroom and embrace the teachable moments that take the guise of Disney movies, Disney theme parks, Disney story books, Disney art, and more!
You can learn while you play when you discover that Disney IS school!
