TeachersFirst's Victorian Christmas
Plan a Victorian Christmas for your class, beginning with this collection of resources. Take a multidisciplinary approach to include decorative arts, food, literature, and more. Assign different student groups to organize and share various aspects of the holidays from another place and time. This list of reviewed resources will get you started. You might even want to create a Victorian Christmas wiki as a virtual experience to which you can "invite" others. Learn more about wikis in TeachersFirst's Wiki Walk-Through.

Grades3 to 10
In the ClassroomTry this easy activity during a Christmas 'Round the World unit or as part of a study of the Victorian Era. Have students take digital pictures of the steps and include them on your class web page or wiki (with captions!) so others can try the activity at home. Make cornucopias as gifts for a visit to a local nursing home or children's home so the activity becomes a service project.
