Do you ever wonder how and from where many of our Holiday traditions originated? Most of our symbols were brought to the USA with European immigrants. Merry Christmas, America! is a Match Game with 15 of those traditions and a map of Europe so you can locate the countries, too.

Those same traditions were part of Early American celebrations as well. I created a short story entitled A Frontier Christmas Memory for you to read and illustrate . A Vocabulary Challenge from the text & Answer Sheet are, also, included.

The theme of Christmas Past continues in this unit with two more activities: making a Quilted Star Ornament & creating a gift book of Family Coupons.

Included in this December's CLAMDiggers Unit are:

  • front & back covers for booklet use
  • a thematic literature list of trade books
  • a general lesson plan for reading comprehension of the reads
  • 5 hands-on interactive activities with instructions written on an independent upper elementary level

You can utilize this unit as:

  • whole group instruction
  • small group instruction
  • cooperative groups
  • center time activities
  • partner sharing
  • independent study
