A Malaysian English teacher creatively pounced on the recent Barbie-mania following the release of the film by integrating the Mattel toy series into his lessons in a fun and interactive way.

Taking to Twitter, the teacher, Muhammad Nazmi shared how he built human-sized “Barbie boxes” from used boxes with his pupils similar to the ones you’d find as photo booths at cinemas and other marketing campaigns for the movie.


Nazmi further revealed how he cleverly used the props to attract the attention of his Year 2 pupils while integrating various English language-related lessons.

For example, in one lesson plan titled “What I want in my Barbie box?”, Nazmi taught his pupil new nouns and simple adjectives while also focusing on listening and speaking skills.


All of the lesson plans fully utilise the Barbie boxes and some other Barbie-related props, which Nazmi hoped can inspire other teachers out there to expand on the idea and make the classroom fun for their students.

From the photos shared by the English teacher, it looks like his students are all fully on board with the interactive lessons, having a blast while learning!


In the replies to the Twitter thread, many Malaysians praise Nazmi for his creativity and passion for teaching, saying that the pupils are lucky to have him as a teacher.
