Middle School Christmas Activities Bundle

This middle school Christmas activities bundle contains 4 different lessons to complete with your classes during the month of December:

  • Global Holiday Celebrations Research Assignment: Help students learn about different cultures, celebrations, and faiths with this holiday research assignment. Students will work in pairs to research 1 of the 16 suggested holiday and/or cultural celebrations. Students could also choose to research a local holiday or cultural celebration.
  • Christmas Truce of 1914 Media Analysis Unit: This cross-curricular unit for the historical World War 1 event is called the “Christmas Truce of 1914”. This event took place between the British and German troops along the western front trenches in France. It is explained to students using a variety of media types: readings, videos, and songs.
  • Middle School Christmas Unit: This engaging Christmas Unit contains 6 different activities that will help reinforce your students’ reading and writing skills. Students will learn about the historical background of Christmas traditions and prepare for a holiday-themed discussion about current Christmas customs. *This resource is focused on the North American commercial Christmas – this is not a religious unit.
  • Christmas Writing Prompts: These writing prompts are a “no prep, just photocopy and go” lesson. When students use these interactive writing prompts, they get to get up and stay moving. Students use the 8 different Christmas-themed story prompts to get thinking creatively about what might happen in each scenario. Students move around the classroom to answer their classmates’ story-writing prompts.

All resources in this Middle School Christmas Activities Bundle contain individual PDFs of student pages to assist with online learning, i.e. Google Classroom™.

Middle School Christmas Activities Bundle – Teacher Feedback:

  1. “The writing tasks in this resource are amazing. I love that the articles are student friendly and that there are videos and other resources to engage the students. The students are able to get the same information multiple times, by different methods. My students loved discussing the pros and cons of real vs fake trees, and writing about which one they prefer.”
  2. “Fantastic resource with lots of options. It’s hard to get students to focus right before the holidays but this definitely helped! It was 100% worth the purchase price, as the lessons are ready to go and saved my sanity during such a busy time of year. Thanks for this :)”
  3. “This is an excellent resource for the last few weeks leading up to Christmas break. My students found the lessons in this package very engaging, and were able to produce a lot of discussion based around the topics. Very pleased with the content and quality of this package.”
