What is Christmas?

With our What is Christmas? lesson plan, students learn about Christmas, including its history as a holiday and how it is celebrated all around the world today.

Our What is Christmas? lesson plan teaches students all about the Christmas holiday, including its origins and how it’s celebrated today. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a partner to answer questions about Christmas. Students are also asked to match Christmas vocabulary terms, such as “St. Nicholas” and “Bethlehem,” with their definitions.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to explain the religious and secular origins and traditions of Christmas and identify the various symbols and meanings related to the holy day/holiday.

    Good Christmas choice

    This Christmas product was a great time saving for the end of the school term. The students loved the being able to discuss how they celebrate Chritmas and then being able to put their own spin on the 12 days of Christimas :)
