Quick and Easy Christmas Lesson!

Like any good teacher, I got some ideas from multiple places to adapt and make a quick and easy Christmas lesson. I used a worksheet from superteacherworksheets.com that had students brainstorm different ideas about Christmas. Superteacherworksheets.com is totally worth their subscription–such a great value! I didn’t use this sheet in its entirety, but I did use the brainstorm different Christmas movies list. Students enjoyed the opportunity to interact in our “much virtual” world. I had students brainstorm at least 15 different Christmas movies that weren’t sequels (like Part 1, Part 2 etc.) Then I also had students think of the characters in each of the movies. Students’ job was to think of the most creative characters in their list. This required them to think and to have constructive conversation–WIN WIN! Next I had them list their eight most creative characters from the Christmas movie list. Thanks to Ian Byrd over at byrdseed.com for his idea to create tournaments. (The byrdseed.tv subscription is totally worth it, too.)

Then students make a tournament like you would make for sports teams with their eight creative characters until they have a winner. Ian has a printable tournament page which is great for many ideas. (I do believe it is only available if you have the subscription, however.) With my students Kevin McCallister from Home Alone won two of the tournaments for most creative character from a Christmas movie. He is definitely one I had in mind!

Next time you get ready to teach a Christmas lesson, I hope this gives you a quick and easy lesson idea.
