Looking to keep your students busy this week but required to stick to content? This integrated Task List with a Christmas theme puts a different spin on the choice board. The activities are differentiated for different learning styles, which is a key component of instruction for gifted learners. Modifications for all students are suggested, including English Language Learners.
Activties include station cards and teacher directions for 4 stations including my Civil War DBQ set. The other stations involve tasks to meet the needs of students with Interpersonal, Understanding, and Self-Expressive Learning Styles. You can keep the tasks open-ended letting students choose or have them rotate through stations.
Task 1: Civil War Christmas DBQ
Task 2: Christmas at Ellis Island Diary Entry
Task 3: Formulating questions about Christmas at the turn of the century
Task 4: Making Creative Connections between your life and holiday traditions from different eras or comparing two different characters
