Christmas activities over 100 years ago were strange! Be ready for surprised looks and lots of giggles as your students read an 1894 text about games for a Christmas party. Among the games suggested were some that encouraged playing with fire!
This hilarious, high-interest text is great before winter break when your students are more distracted than usual. They will be focused as they annotate this revived piece of history. No time for a lesson? Have this available for your early-finishers.
Also included is a quick and fun game from 1912. Don’t worry, this one doesn’t involve fire!
