Our What is Hannukah? lesson plan teaches students all about the Easter 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 the holiday and its history. Students are also asked to translate some Hebrew terms into English.

    Excellent Resource

    I love using Claredon Learning materials. It is so nice to have printable activities, worksheets and answer keys. I teach high school special education social studies classes. Your materials are perfect for this level and helpful for supplementing my lesson plans.
