Teach students about different winter holidays with favorite books, ready-to-go classroom activities, and festive crafts.
Who first put up a Christmas tree? What is Advent? Who was the “real” Santa Claus? Students (grades 2–8) get answers to these questions and more by exploring an interactive Christmas scrapbook, in Christmas History and Traditions, one of several holiday activities covered in Scholastic’s Celebrate Winter Holidays.
Through photos, articles, and online activities, students learn the history and traditions of this popular Christian holiday. Plus, they can view postcards to see how kids around the globe celebrate Christmas.
