Children are surrounded with Christmas images every November and December. But, do they know about the other winter holidays celebrated in the United States? Here are short summaries of las Posadas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah.
I find that most of my students have never heard of Kwanzaa. It is important to teach students about other cultures. Teaching Kwanzaa is one way for me to do that. This Kwanzaa Symbol Matching game is a game that can be used to help students learn about the seven symbols of Kwanzaa, while understanding that it is a holiday celebrated by some African Americans during the month of December.
