Middle School Christmas Unit: This engaging Christmas Unit contains 11 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.

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: Use this 5-lesson unit to help your students examine this important event in World War 1 history where British and German troops stopped fighting for Christmas.

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 think creatively about what might happen in each scenario. Students move around the classroom to answer their classmates’ story-writing prompts.

Christmas Creative Writing Assignment: Use this choice board to help your students enjoy the holiday season while practicing their writing skills. Students will select the role of one character – Santa’s Elf, Christmas Turkey, Gingerbread Man, Christmas Tree, or Museum Curator – and create a written product based on the writing prompt. Students select from 1 of the 5 different writing options using the RAFT format (Role, Audience, Format, Topic).

New Year’s Goal Setting Activity and Reflection Sheets: These reflection sheets are a no-prep activity that gets students excited and engaged during their first week back at school. Help your students self-reflect with this step-by-step goal-setting activity. Students will activate their reflection skills in a group setting and then transition to the independent task.
