Activity Overview


Objects come to symbolize different things in various contexts, and understanding symbolism is vital to a greater appreciation of literature and culture. Many students can recognize that something is associated with Christmas, Kwanzaa, or Hannukah, but they may not understand why. This activity can give students a good foundation on symbols and symbolism, or it can be used as a focus on winter holidays. Give students a list of symbols for all holidays, or let them select symbols on their own.

The example uses the grid layout, but the spider map, traditional storyboard, and T-chart would work as well. Students should name the symbol in the title box, make a visual representation in the storyboard cell, and then explain what the symbol represents in the description box; or, as in the example, name and depict the symbol, then make visualizations!

There are many symbols for Christmas, Hannukah, and Kwanzaa! Here are only a handful:
