The Social Studies curriculum requires my students to understand and recognize symbols within groups and communities. This concept is difficult to grasp for these young learners. I chose to introduce this concept in relation to Christmas through the reader “Symbols of Christmas” found in the link below. Feel free to use this for your own classroom. My students enjoyed completing the interactive components where they completed each page as described in the text.
