Christmas Craftivity - Giving Trees
Get your students thinking about the spirit of giving with this fun Christmas tree craftivity.
This resource contains two options for differentiation:
•One where students answer a question and tell why (eg. If you could give any gift in the world to your family, what would it be and why would you give it?) (* the first six trees in this resource *),
•And one where students draw a picture of gifts they would give (six different prompts) and print the word underneath
(* the next six trees in this resource *).
To save on ink, print the style that fits the needs of your students (or print both and let your students choose, or you can print three from one style and three from the other and alternate tree panels). Students will finish the writing and color and decorate each tree (6 pages in total) before assembling the finished trees (assembly instructions on next page).
I have also included a fill-in option for each version of the tree –you can write in who you would want to give a gift to. There is also a blank version of the tree (in version #1, but can be used with either version) to use as a cover page in case you want to assemble your trees in a book format instead of a 3D craftivity.
Completed trees are a fabulous way to decorate your classroom before Christmas, and then can be sent home to make a beautiful table centerpiece for Christmas dinner.
You have three different options for printing (you want your trees to be sturdy enough to stand on their own):
•Print on construction paper
•Print on cardstock
•Print on regular paper, then glue onto construction paper and cut out around the tree shape
For easier completion, be sure students complete each page BEFORE they assemble (cut and glue) the tree. Younger students may require some assistance cutting out and assembling the trees (could be a great opportunity to pair up with another class).
