1. What’s your favorite holiday tradition?

2. Holidays will be celebrated differently this year due to COVID-19. How will you adapt your favorite holiday traditions this season?

3. The entire world is having to adapt this holiday season because of COVID-19. How do you feel about adapting your holiday traditions this year?


Students will be able to prove the big idea, “Cultures have specific traditions” using informational texts, multimedia, and an interview to complete a graphic organizer and create a two-minute oral presentation.
