Looking for a last minute plan that's flexible to implement? This 8 page file include a 4 page newspaper style history of the Christmas tree, a two page scavenger hunt, and complete answer key. The text pack has been purposefully designed to teach, strengthen, and enhance a student's ability to analyze informational text and text features. As such, the intention is that the students must use critical thinking skills and attend to the text in order to find the answers. Students can work independently, as pairs, or as groups to read and find the answers hidden in the text and text features. Also, works well as a substitute lesson plan.
