Product Description

CHRISTMAS NON-FICTION Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus: Use this resource to get your middle and high school students in the holiday spirit. This resource includes a variety of activities to accompany a holiday non-fiction editorial response in a newspaper from the 1800's.

In 1897, Virginia O’Hanlon had begun to doubt there was a Santa Claus, because her friends had told her that he did not exist. Her father suggested she write to The Sun, a prominent New York City newspaper at the time, assuring her that “If you see it in The Sun, it’s so. One of the editors, Francis Pharcellus Church's response sends a message of hope and addresses the philosophical issues behind the question.
