Family Traditions

Honor family traditions with a instructional activity that examines the variety of winter celebrations. Class members discuss their family's traditions then complete a cut-and-paste practice page in which they match a picture to the name of a holiday. Holidays in focus include Christmas, Hanukka, Kwanza, and Ramadan.
