Season and Holiday Unit Studies ; Plan Ahead!!!!! Take a few minutes each day to outline what you might want to discover with your kids this Fall and Winter. What special Thanksgiving and or Christmas tradition , story, recipe do you want to make a memory? By planning ahead you will have supplies ready, a loose plan to follow and find you accomplish so much more.
Since my kids are older I plan to do a Jepordy Game of sorts. We will choose a topic ( questions such as below ) per day and the kids have to answer the question the following day. Guidelines for my crew ( 7th , 9th and 11th grade) would be all research documented, at least 3 paragraphs ect.
For starters: Why do leaves change colors?
Who were the Wampanoag?
Do you know who Snowflake Bentley is?
What is the Ledgend of the Candy Cane?
