Product Description
This engaging presentation introduces students to the classic 1897 editorial from the New York Sun, "Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus." This is such a wonderful way to dispel skepticism and cynicism and restore faith in the Christmas spirit.

Among 38 slides, I've divided the article, history including the identity of Virginia, and the legacy of the event, and post-reading tasks.


Activities include

-----10 reading comprehension questions,

-----10 critical thinking questions requiring interpretation and analysis, and discussion of the relevance of the concepts in the letter today,

-----a vocabulary chart listing 6 words to define using context clues and prompting
original sentence writing using those words, and an

-----acrostic (SANTA) where students list values attributed to Santa.

I used clear font and unique graphics on each slide.

Microsoft PowerPoint 10.

I also have this activity available in a hard copy in my store.
