Hanukkah is such a fun holiday to introduce to your students. We always kick our Holidays Around the World Unit with Israel. This packet provides great a great introduction to Hanukkah and comes with a handful of activities that will keep your babes learnin' and grinnin' from ear to ear.
In addition to non-fiction vocab cards (real photos), this packet comes with a interactive mini reader that is perfect for reading groups. I attempted to write this in a way that 1st and 2nd graders could understand. However, you may not like the angle I chose to follow. Therefore, I tossed in an editable version of this activity. You can write your own words to go with the pictures!
