PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun reading activity comparing the similar though distinct celebrations of Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Day of the Dead, and Hungry Ghost Festival. 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 Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Day of the Dead, and The Hungry Ghost Festival 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.
