Students choose a holiday song of their choosing and piggyback historically accurate lyrics upon the popular carol tune. Points are awarded for adhering to the carol rhyme scheme, number of stanzas, printed lyrics, accompanying music, and extra points for live performance, of which I always had several. (A very neat way to learn of students' hidden talents.) The piggybacked carols provided a fun way to review for semester exams as after editing for content I downloaded all their efforts to the student drive for easy student access.
