Introduce your students to Diwali with this beautifully drawn minibook! Perfect for a Holidays Around the World unit, or as a way to incorporate a global perspective to your ELA lessons.
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 our Diwali activities and crafts to teach your children about a holiday celebrated by millions of Indian people around the world. The dates of this festival vary per year, but fall in October or November.
