Kitakyushu JALT:

Two Christmas Activities

Date: Saturday, October 11th, 2008 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Christopher Carman, Margaret Orleans

Although Christmas may still seem a long way off, it's never too early to start preparing for the day! This month we have a couple of activities guaranteed to bring some seasonal cheer into the classroom, as well as help your students gain a better understanding of the whole Christmas experience.

Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean: Find all the Christmas iconography in the short video "Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean". Determine which icons are religious and which are secular. Create a narration and dialogue for the silent film.

Illustrated Christmas Carol Titles: Match the punny illustrations with the names of traditional and offbeat Christmas songs. There's no need to be familiar with the songs themselves for this activity.
