During the holiday season, I frequently hear from 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers about the lack of appropriate holiday fun. The elf and Santa activities seem too primary for their students. I’ve enjoyed creating this Reindeer inquiry to be enjoyed by intermediate grade students. The skill include; non-fiction reading, reading for information, concept connections, classification, research skills, characteristic wheel, formative assessment organizer, habitats, migration, fact, non-fact, and opinion.
Perfect for small group, centers, or individual work.
