Bilingual, printable, cut-and-paste Needs and Wants Christmas Stocking social studies Activity in French and English.
Children often get a case of the “gimmes” during the holiday season. We can use this teachable moment to slip in a social studies lesson of needs and wants with a Christmas theme. English and French templates included in 2 sizes with directions for writing or adding pictures. Students can write about needs and wants in each stocking and then add pictures. Have them add pictures they draw or cut out from magazines. A flyer from a superstore has a wealth of needs and wants pictures that students love to cut out and use. If you are using this for language learners they can label the pictures in the target language. I have also included some example pictures students can cut out and glue to the stockings, but student will really enjoy the lesson more if they have a real life sale paper to search through and cut up.
