It’s finally the last month of the year! December is a month filled with holiday cheers and joy! This month, different cultures around the world get together and celebrate the meaning of family, togetherness, and culture. We have three holiday lesson plans this month on three special holidays: Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Boxing Day!

Hanukkah – This lesson plan will teach students about the origin of Hanukkah. They will learn the story behind Hanukkah. Students will discuss the traditional food and symbols of Hanukkah. They will be required to create a Voki to present a scene that represents Hanukkah from the Hanukah story.
Kwanzaa – Students will learn about the 7 principles of Kwanzaa. They will discuss about the different symbols that represent Kwanzaa and how Kwanzaa is celebrated. Students will learn how Kwanzaa began and the meaning of Kwanzaa. Students will write a story on one of the symbols or principles of Kwanzaa to share with the class.
Boxing Day – In this lesson plan, students will learn about the origination of Boxing Day, which countries celebrate it, and how it is celebrated. They will be required to research how people celebrate Boxing Day and Boxing Day traditions. Students will create a Voki to present their research on Boxing Day traditions.
Remember: The grade level assigned to each lesson plan is not set in stone. You can use Voki lesson plans for a higher, or lower, grade than the one you teach. These Voki lesson plans can be adapted to fit your style or your students’ abilities!
