Favorite Holiday Traditions

Students in this 4th/5th grade class class made dioramas to represent their favorite holiday traditions. Each student also wrote a one-page paper to tell about their traditions. They were encouraged to be creative, and to try to move beyond using paper as their main resource. They learned that most families celebrate the same holidays during the winter, but there are many different ways of celebrating.  The project was a big success and a great learning experience for everyone involved.
