Christmas FUN! This resource provides 4 activities to teach about Christmas in an interactive and exciting way that is great for December!


In this activity, students will learn about:

a) Christmas celebrations around the world (France, Brazil, Australia, Singapore and South Africa (reading puzzle)

b) Symbols of Christmas and their meaning (video puzzle)

c) Are reindeer real? (reading puzzle)

d) What is "A Christmas Carol"? (video response)


As students read the informational texts and watch videos, they will have to solve puzzles and answer questions based on the information they learn. This activity includes 2 readings and 2 videos.


Questions in the challenges include:

-true and false

-multiple choice

-fill in the blank


-context clues




You can use this activity as an ongoing lesson for a few days or challenge your students to "breakout" in one day! -- Completing this challenge in one day would be a whole day activity; not just one or two literacy periods).



-NOTE: students will require use of the internet to watch the videos for challenges 2 and 4

-students use the information in the readings or videos to complete the challenges

-once they solve each puzzle, they are given two or three letter clues (either digitally on the Google Form or on paper by the teacher)

-these letter clues must be unscrambled to solve a Christmas-themed riddle/joke given at the end of the breakout!


PRINT (color and printer-friendly!) and DIGITAL versions are included!
