Description

Use this engaging Christmas activity /video team-builder as a way to improve divergent thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and creative writing.

In this activity, students will take on the role of Santa's elves the week after Christmas. The elves' magic dust is depleted and they are bored with nothing to do! They decide to develop a new toy for elves to play with made out of left-over holiday materials!

Students must work together in groups to develop a new toy made from wrapping paper, wrapping paper rolls, bags, tissue paper, tape, and a mystery supply item of their choice.

The best part is that your purchase comes with a hand-drawn video, created by the talented John Spencer, that introduces the activity to hook students in! Watch the preview video above to get a sneak peek of the video included and download the preview to get a closer look at all of the materials (organizers, handouts, etc.) you can use to implement the activity in your classroom.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

• Students watch a hand-drawn video that introduces the activity to students. This video is highly engaging and will hook your students immediately. Watch the video preview on the product page to get a sneak peek.

• Use the instructions, graphic organizers, and templates to plan out what toy students want to create

• Students actually work together to develop and make this toy!

• Students write a narrative from the perspective of the elves playing with the toy.
