This mostly-for-fun holiday activity entitled DECEMBER IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER (Part One and Part Two) combines vocabulary building with December trivia.
Students are challenged to use definitions, clues, and research skills to identify a set of terms, titles, and names--the first beginning with the letter A and the last with the letter Z--all of which are connected to December weather, events, or holidays. The last few questions in each activity set change themes slightly by focusing on famous people with December Birthdays. There are thirty-three items in Set One and thirty more in Set Two.
The last page is a bonus graphic organizer for writing based on the alphabetical-order theme.
Full answer keys are included for a total of six pages.
