This lesson contains a Google Slides presentation that will have students using context clues and finding the theme of a Hanukkah song, a Christmas song, and a Kwanzaa story. There is a handout that accompanies it for the students to fill out as well as a built in activity that requires students to perform a deeper level of thinking by describing characteristics of a character and sorting them into categories. It also contains discussion questions.
This is a great activity to do around the holiday season. This activity followed by my Holidays Around the World Digital Research would make for a great 90 minute reading block period.
