We've all been there: you're either heading into the three days before Christmas break just hoping you can keep your students in their seats, or you're trying to figure out how to talk about Christmas holidays in a politically correct manner. This 23-page lesson plan is designed to cover three days and give middle school students an introduction to Christmas traditions and celebrations all over the world. The goal of the lesson is to keep engagement up while also providing some rigor and valuable information and research skills!
There are some links to extra videos and information if you need it! Internet access recommended for your classroom. If you have Internet access, this is a "grab and go" lesson plan as all handouts and questions are included. (Perfect for a sub plan, too!)
