This unit is designed for upper grades (2-5). They will be able to learn about the origin of the Christmas Tree through close reading strategies and then use their math and writing skills to complete other activities. It also includes ideas for a STEM project where students will use various materials to construct their own tree. I hope this unit helps to enhance your holiday studies.
