Give your students the opportunity to practice critical thinking skills with this resource based on a holiday classic!
This interactive PowerPoint Activity allows practice in thinking outside the box with Charles Dickens' classic holiday novella, A Christmas Carol.
This activity can be used with the whole class or in small groups to discuss the sixteen, various high-level thinking questions. I have included a link for the students to listen to a shortened version of the story, as well as a link to one of my favorite full-length versions.
Want some friendly competition added into the mix? Each question has a point value. Students can answer each of the questions and then decide on the best answer. This activity is for students of all ages. It is naturally differentiated and is a perfect fit for students of all ages and skill levels.
1. Interactive PowerPoint Show with 16 questions.
2. A set of 16 task cards that can be used without the PowerPoint. Just copy, cut on the solid line, fold on the dotted line, staple/glue/laminate for a great language center activity! Lots of other uses, as well!
3. Answer Worksheet for students to jot down their ideas before sharing them with the group.
