PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Diwali Lesson Plan: Diwali is the Festival of Lights celebrated in India. Teachers often include Diwali in "Christmas Around the World" or "Holidays Around the World" units because teaching multicultural celebrations can give us a glimpse into a new culture. As teachers we can open our kids' eyes to global holidays AND also instill pride in children as we feature their heritage.

Use the following Diwali activities and crafts to teach your children about a holiday celebrated by millions of Indian people around the world. Diwali in 2015 will start on Wednesday, November 11th and will continue for 5 days until Sunday, November 15th.

In this Kid World Citizen "Diwali" packet students will:

* Make a minibook about Diwali and learn about how, where, and why it is celebrated
* Practice adding 0-9 ( +0, +1, +2) with Diwali candles (diyas) as their number line
* Practice subtracting 0-9 (where the difference is 0, 1, or 2) and use their answers to color in a rangoli design
* Practice correcting “capital letter” errors in sentences featuring Diwali cultural information
* Color in beautifully illustrated and unique rangoli designs
* Read a story (filled with high frequency vocabulary!) about children celebrating Diwali with their family, and answer comprehension questions.
* Practice handwriting skills while they write culturally-relevant phrases about Diwali; then they will draw a picture that relates the holiday to their own celebrations and experiences.

In addition to the beginning cultural guide for Diwali, teachers also get 2 bonus coloring sheets, and instructions to make 3 additional Diwali crafts in class!

The lessons include specific Common Core Standards, plus an instructional guide for the teacher with background information on Diwali and additional links.
