Looking for a Christmas themed activities for the entire week? I've got you covered!

This Christmas tree reading and writing activity is the perfect way to incorporate a fun, holiday theme into your instruction during the week before Christmas.

My students love this activity from year to year, because they learn so much and can relate to both of the passages. In this activity, your students will read two paired passages, the first about real Christmas Trees and the second about artificial Christmas trees.

They'll learn reasons why people might want one over the other and the impacts of each on our environment. Which is truly better?

From there, they can demonstrate their learning through a writing prompt, craftivity, or both!
