This year I have a goal to teach meaningful and educational lessons about holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I love teaching about holidays and doing fun holiday crafts in my classroom, but I am ready for a change. I normally read a cute story about the holiday and then do a fun craft, but I really want to dig deeper into these important events in history and teach my students something new and interesting. Finding holiday materials that are educational and engaging can be difficult so we (The Core Coaches) worked together and created an amazing Christopher Columbus lesson. We decided to create a close read interactive drama pack. We wrote complex text for primary and upper grades and made posters for text coding.
