The students will practice text dependent questions, authors purpose, text structure, comparing and contrasting, illustrations, moral of the story, context clues, nonliteral statements, main idea and detail, and character traits in this ENGAGING Holidays Around the World challenge. The students will go through a series of eight challenges. Each challenge will require them to complete a reading activity, which involves reading and applying a skill. They will work there way through eight different countries. When they are done you can celebrate with a holiday party!
