Questions About Remote Learning?

Activity Overview

There are a lot of stories surrounding the winter holidays, both familiar and obscure. After reading stories or articles in the classroom, have your students create a summary or retelling of the story. Use a traditional or a timeline storyboard to lay out the events.

  • Origins of the Holiday

  • Notable Occurrences on the Anniversary of the Holiday
    • wartime battle
    • wartime cease-fire
    • natural disaster
    • social issues

  • Favorite Characters
    • Santa Claus
    • Mrs. Claus
    • elves
    • Frosty the Snowman
    • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
    • Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen

  • Books
    • Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel
    • Seven Spools of Thread: A Kwanzaa Story by Angela Shelf Medearis
    • A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

    An extension of this activity could be for students to write their own holiday story using a traditional storyboard, preferably a story on a holiday they do not celebrate.
