This is a 16 page packet focusing on the legend of La Befana, the Italian Christmas Witch. It is perfect to use for a Christmas Around the World lesson. Because the legend has to do with the Feast of the Three Kings, which is on January 6th, it's also a great mini lesson to do upon return from Christmas break!
Please note that this legend has to do with Baby Jesus, so the readers' theater and corresponding writing activities are faith-based.
The packet includes:
-La Befana Readers' Theater Script
-La Befana's Broom Craft Instructions
-La Befana Haiku printables (2 to choose from)
-La Befana Writing Paper for optional writing assignments
I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine did!
