As educators, we know that holidays are a consistent feature of the school year. Whether they result in days off or special school activities, holidays can be fun as well as disruptive to a regular school schedule. But can we turn them into teachable moments?
This book brings together lesson plans with an abundance of brief, in-class activities around 61 holidays and special events celebrated in the United States and around the globe. The lesson plans in this book are built around PBS LearningMedia’s video series “All About the Holidays.”
