Product Description
No Prep Winter Holiday Craftivity: Cross-curricular connections to Support Research, Writing, and Social Studies (includes Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, Kwanzaa, Lunar New Year, and Three Kings' Day)

Looking for a great way to cover cultural celebrations, but don't have a lot of time to prepare during this busy holiday season? This cross-curricular unit combines research on winter holidays (Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Chinese New Year, Diwali, and Three Kings' Day) around the world with poetry writing to produce a great, ready-to-display project. With differentiated options and a quick reference for websites and videos to support student learning, you can't go wrong with this great unit.

This 37 page unit includes resources to help research 6 major holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Diwali, Lunar New Year, and Three Kings' Day) and write 6 different types of poetry (acrostic, concrete, cinquain, tanka, haiku, and diamante). Each holiday is purposely paired with a poem type to support ease of use.

The no prep structure of this product lends itself to many possible teaching frameworks. Teachers can have students do all the research first and teach the poems in succession, or they can break down the holidays one at a time. This would allow students to take notes on a holiday and learn the poem types one at a time before moving on to the next holiday and poem.

Product Contents:
• Teacher directions with photos
• Clickable resource list with videos, websites, and other tools to help students learn about the holidays and prepare to write their poems
• 6 student planning guides (1 per holiday) for note-taking on each holiday and brainstorming to pre-write
• 6 draft pages with a definition of each poem type, a model poem, and a scaffolded graphic organizer to make writing easy
• 2 different final product formats - Holiday Poetry Pocket and Tabbed Mini-Book
