Ho, ho, ho! This is a engaging project incorporating the infamous Santa Claus and facts about the different states. Students are assigned a state to use to make a "State Santa". Included in this file are student directions, a grading rubric, graphic organizers for the project, and a Santa template.
My students absolutely LOVE this project every year. After students are finished creating their projects, we invite other classes in to see the different State Santas. I've had kids dress up to add to their project!
This is a perfect project to do the week before Christmas break when you want the kids to stay engaged, busy, and LEARNING!
