Have fun designing Christmas stockings and ornaments for historical figures, Civil Rights icons, or favorite authors or characters! Design and justify design choices (colors, symbols, embellishments) using evidence gathered from class lecture, discussion, or research. Choose Christmas gifts appropriate for historical
figures, Civil Rights icons, authors or characters. Explain why gifts are appropriate by citing evidence from class discussion or readings.
These activities are appropriate for grades 5-12. I use these activities with my High School Civil Rights History and English students. My students really enjoy this activity.
This resource includes six coloring sheets, three charts, three Christmas tree sheets, three gift-tag sheets, and one color connotation sheet.
