About this Project Learning unit:
This unit has been designed for students to use as they learn about and gain a better understanding of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
A history has been given (on the following page) and can be used as one source of information to complete the unit. However, it is not recommended to be used as the only source of information. Students are encouraged to seek out children’s books on the holiday at the library or local book store to learn more about the traditions of Hanukkah.
A great variety of pages have been designed to give students a place to organize and record what they have learned in the process of their investigation. Particular pages can be assigned or students may be given a choice as to which they prefer to use.
Students should be encouraged to read, research, investigate, record, create, color and share throughout the project! Upon completion, each student should produce a completed
Hanukkah Shape Book.
Completed books can be displayed on student bulletin boards, placed in portfolios or simply kept as a memory and proof of their learning journey.
