A FREE Christmas gift to you!
"Christmas Bells" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is a Christmas poem much loved by young and old. Longfellow, arguably the most popular American poet of all time, wrote this classic work after his son was wounded in battle during the Civil War. The author conveys the message of the bells: hope and love will overcome death and despair! As our country continues to face war's devastating effects, this poem's theme makes for a timely study!
This is a 30 minute lesson plan that includes TWO PAGES: the student handout with the poem, an author bio, and discussion questions and the teacher handout with the questions and answers.
