Christmas Around the World Activity Purpose
This activity involves reading comprehension strategies such as cloze reading (using context clues), visualizing, organizing information, and finding specific details.
As students read the fact cards, they have to hunt for information. This information-seeking process will involve reading and re-reading of the clue cards. The activity, therefore, mirrors the close reading skills you will be teaching your students throughout the year.
The students then synthesize their knowledge and understanding using the Christmas puzzle poster activity.
In this pack you will receive:
⭐️Eight Christmas Fact Cards
⭐️Twelve puzzle pieces with a range of artistic and writing activities
These puzzles come in two sizes. Choose the size that fits your purpose!
