In the Classroom

Use the video on this site to show students how the tradition of Santa Claus has evolved over the years. The section about the Christmas Truce of 1914 would be a really great find for a class working on WWI, particularly if the timing is right before the holidays. There is a video to accompany the article, but teachers can just as easily display or print the article to share the same information. This would be a really great way to show the human side of the war instead of an endless list of battles and alliances.

This Web Quest engages students in examining the complexities of Victorian society through the eyes of Ebenezer Scrooge. Having developed a new attitude after visitations from the three spirits, Scrooge is ready to change the world by running for mayor of London. Students - working as campaign managers - must help Ebenezer develop campaign points and outline strategies to woo the public into accepting his ideas for social reform. Aspects of Victorian life described in A Christmas Carol, form the basis for this activity, although it could easily be adapted to any of his other novels.

In the Classroom

This would actually be a great resource for a government class working right before the holidays! During a unit on campaigns, use this activity as a way for students to think outside of the box in applying their lessons. This could even be used alongside a language arts classroom studying "A Christmas Carol," to ensure all students are up to snuff on Scrooge's character. This is a fun way to look at political campaigns with an interdisciplinary focus.

This well-organized WebQuest involves students in investigating how Christmas is celebrated in cultures around the world. Materials and online resources are provided; the only thing you must contribute is the computer lab.

tag(s): christmas (54), holidays (146)

In the Classroom

Use this webquest on Christmas before the holidays - hopefully in time for a unit or lesson on world religions. While clearly the focus is Christianity, students might still enjoy the varying traditions among other nations - especially the unique ones of Eastern Europe!

Instead of creating a paper or oral report, have students complete the task with an online books using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here. The rubric would still apply, and it would be something new to get students interested in the project.
