Student Holiday News Reports
Why do we have winter vacation? It's not just so you can have time off to play with your new toys and video games… and it's not so you can have a break from school. There are several holidays that take place in December and winter vacation is time off given to celebrate those holidays. Follow the directions below to write your own Holiday News Report:
- Click on the links and view the power-points below to learn about three holidays celebrated in December: Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa. (click on the power-points to change slides).
- See your teacher for a copy of the Holiday News worksheet. Your teacher will assign a holiday to you to write about (just like a real journalist who gets their assignment from their editor!)
- Use the resources on this website to write your news report. Create a headline for your report and an illustration that represents your holiday.
