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