PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a fun and engaging lesson unit where students create a new and unique holiday celebration. It can be used at any time of year, and any of the activities can be used together or individually.

After reading an entertaining poster with examples of "Not-So-Well-Known Holidays and Celebrations," students will use brainstorming worksheets to help them create their own unique holiday based on a person, thing, or cause that is important to them! They will then use creative and critical thinking skills to determine what traditions, foods, colors, and symbols should be associated with their new celebration.

Also included is an extension map for students to further develop their holiday! Activities in the tic-tac-toe style map include writing, drawing, and even creating a board game based on their holiday! This component is perfect for differentiation!

Included in this product:
*Individual and Class Recording Sheets of known holidays and celebrations
*Poster of "Not-So-Well-Known Holidays and Celebrations" to go over with your students
*Two Brainstorming/Planning worksheets
*4 Descriptive Writing Templates to meet student needs
*Extension Menu (teacher directions included)
*Writing Templates for relevant Extension Menu projects
