Local Celebrations

For this lesson students will learn about the holidays, seasons, national holidays in the U.S., and the weather. Students will be able to identify what holidays we celebrate during what season, including national holidays. The students will learn about the weather of each season and what type of clothing is appropriate for that season, or according to the weather. Students will use prior knowledge on their favorite holidays and what traditions they do with their family to celebrate that holiday. They will also learn what traditions their community has for celebrating certain holidays, and specific celebrations that take place in the Rio Grande Valley. A series of projects, group work, and a book will be used throughout the different days of the lesson. At the end of the week, teacher will check for understanding with a formative assessment. Each lesson is adaptable to ELL students and learners with special needs.
