Everyone has a favorite Christmas carol. Illustrate a carol and then try to identify each other’s songs!
Christmas carols have very interesting histories. Share books with students in a read aloud format such as "Silent Night: The Song and Its Story" by Margaret Hodges or "Silent Night, Holy Night: The Story Behind Our Favorite Christmas Carol" by Myrna A. Strasser to learn the history of that carol. How did caroling get started? From what countries are the carols a tradition? Invite students to do investigate the history of Christmas carols. Provide them with a variety of text and electronic resources for this activity.
When research is complete, ask students to choose a favorite carol and find out the story behind it. On construction paper, write the carol title, a brief history, and the words to at least one verse and the chorus with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils.
On the other side of the paper, ask students to sketch a picture that illustrates the verse chosen. Color the drawing with Crayola Twistables® Crayons.
Students display their drawings. Challenge classmates to identify the name of each others’ carols from clues in the illustrations.
