Topics include Hanukkah, Christmas, Santa Claus, Saint Stephen, Saint Nicolas, Boxing Day, Kwanzaa, saying Merry Christmas in English, French, Spanish, Objibwa, Cree, and Inuktitut, holiday foods and entertainment.
The questions begin very easy, and slowly get more and more difficult. Teachers should preview the 12 sets of questions, and choose those most appropriate for their students. Full instructions are below.
Enjoy a fun game in the final days before the winter holidays, and have everyone – including adults – learning at the same time!
