Product Description
This is a fun reading activity comparing the similar though distinct family/ religious/ seasonal celebrations of Christmas, Eid-al-Fitr, Diwali, and Hanukkah. Students read about these holidays in small groups before returning to their "home-groups" to consolidate information, and then finally coming together as a class check their findings.

- Targeted to grade 5 - 7
- Common Core Aligned

***Resource contains:***

- Four reading comprehension passages (each a brief overview of the way Christmas, Hanukkah, Eid-al-Fitr, and Diwali is celebrated).
- A “jigsaw” worksheet where students can record their answers.
- A PowerPoint presentation displaying sample answers to the information required in the jigsaw reading worksheet (in ppt, pptx, and pdf forms).
- Detailed instructions

ALTERNATIVE: This activity could be completed alone or in pairs, just by giving the students every reading. It wouldn’t be as much fun, though.
