You don't have to be a local to enjoy this exciting Christmas activity! It's the week before Christmas - you want to keep your students engaged, but keep the content relevant and light!
This Christmas activity provides real-life, engaging activities for middle school students. It centers around the Natchitoches Christmas Festival, and students can choose from three hands-on activities:
• Christmas Past: A historic look at the festival, resulting in a timeline mural with summaries of major events.
• Christmas Present: An itinerary and pictorial to describe plans for a two-day trip to the festival and area attractions.
• Christmas Future: A photographic editorial piece for the purpose of attracting more tourists to the event.
Each activity can be completed as a collaborative group, with a partner, or independently. Activities can be completed electronically or “good, old-fashioned paper and pencil”.
Included are instructions, picture models of completed tasks, and the website needed for research.
