In the Classroom

Add this site to your activities to use during December and to help students from all backgrounds understand the different holidays celebrated in December. Introduce this site using the colorful video, then have small groups research a different principle and symbol of Kwanzaa and present their findings to the class. Use an engaging bookmarking tool such as Wakelet, reviewed here. With Wakelet students can make their wakes distinctive by adding a cover image or symbol for their Kwanzaa topic, a background, and choose the layout. As a culminating activity enhance learning by having each student compare Kwanzaa to Chanukah and Christmas using the Interactive Three Circle Venn Diagram, reviewed here.
