Product Description

This beautiful, hand-illustrated drawing, writing, or discussion prompt asks students to create their own holiday. This makes a great activity to do around any holiday that students love to celebrate (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Eid al-Fitr, Hanukkah, Easter, Sukkot). Students can talk about their family or cultural traditions and compare and contrast ways they celebrate.

Or use it as a filler or a warm-up and make it a fun creative activity! Students can design their holiday to be anything they want! This leads in to talking about favorite food, activities, traditions, and of course, what values or historical moments are important to celebrate!

Students pick the date, the reason, the activities, any traditions, and the food. There are no limits on how creative they can be. I recommend letting students draw on the back, thinking about costumes, parades, decorations and more! This is one that definitely lends itself to project work. Let students start with drawings and notes and scaffold up to a longer writing or presentation. You could even do a class party where everyone does one thing from their made-up holiday!

Each of these original worksheets from the 60 Positive Activities for Kids activities are extremely flexible and adaptable to fit your classroom! Students can respond in writing, in discussion, or by drawing. Younger learners (or lower-level ESL/EFL students) might start with a drawing, then label it. After that, they can tell their partner about their answer, before doing a short writing of a sentence or two. Older or more advanced students might start with drawings and notes, and move straight to a paragraph, which they can then read or present to the class!

These exercises make great stress-busters, brain-breaks, warmers, fillers, or fast-finisher activities and they're easy to fit into a writing class, English class, creative play time, or even an after-school program, preschool, nursery school, kindergarten, or homeschooling situation.

The price includes the right to download, photocopy, and reuse this worksheet.
