Listen to songs about transportation problems Santa has had and how he has solved them. Students then create lyrics for a problem and solution for Santa.
1. Complete the graphic organizer about Santa’s problem
2. Have students replace the lyrics in one of their favorite songs with lyrics they write about Santa’s problem and solution.
3. The problem does not have to be about transportation: Think about where Santa lives (global warming at the North Pole); Santa’s health; Mrs. Claus; the other reindeer; polar bears; Santa’s food; the elves… the possibilities are endless!
4. Do this as in independent project with older students or as a class with younger students.
Includes: Graphic organizer, grading rubric, alternative ideas, list of songs that solve Santa's transportation problems.
