PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*** THIS IS A BUNDLED PACK OF THREE LESSON PLAN PACKS WITH ACCOMPANYING WORKSHEETS AND ANSWER KEYS ***

This is a great resource for the High School English classroom, as it helps to take a deeper look at some more complex poems about Christmas.

LESSON PLAN PACK 1 - Christmas Trees
Through a listening comprehension about the history of the Christmas Tree, students start to think about this iconic symbol of Christmas. We then delve into looking at:
* 'Christmas Trees' by Robert Frost
* 'Little Tree' by ee cummings

LESSON PLAN PACK 2 - We Three Kings
This lesson focuses on the three kings in the Nativity story - sometimes overlooked characters, but often written about in poetry! Students are guided through a close analysis of the following poems:
* 'The Three Kings' by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
* 'The Journey of the Magi' by T. S. Eliot

LESSON PLAN PACK 3 - Is Christmas Always Merry?
A rather unique look at Christmas for the senior students - we look at Hans Christian Andersen's tragic story of 'The Little Match Girl', in an attempt to understand how Christmas may not be an easy time of year for everybody. We take a close look at the following poem, written at Christmas in the trenches of WW1:
* 'A Christmas Prayer (from the trenches)' by Cyril Winterbotham
