Please note that there are several response templates for each holiday including : Web, List 3 things you learned, open ended writing page, and a page to insert a draw and label picture. Your students will typically not use all of these templates. One of my favorite things to do is have them use a different template for each holiday, so before assigning, be sure to remove unwanted slides.
Please also read the teaching notes. The discussion about how families celebrate in diverse ways is a must have when teaching about holidays. This resource includes information about common or traditional celebrations. If you have a question about the content, please feel free to reach out prior to purchasing.
