What educators are saying

My kids enjoyed working with partners in breakout rooms for this activity. It was a nice break too because they got to watch the video of a Christmas Story.
This was a great resource to use during the last few weeks of school before Christmas break. My students really enjoyed it and it helped keep them engaged.

Enjoy watching it with your students (ALL video clips are highly appropriate and fun for 6-12 grade). --but you know your students best, and I recommend being familiar with the film.
