Fun Christmas Activities for the Classroom (Grades 2-6)

Christmas is coming and times are chaotic! Wrapping up the year can be difficult amid Christmas concerts and other special events that ALL seem to happen around this time of the year. Even though your students are more than ready for Christmas holidays, it is still possible to keep them highly engaged with fun, meaningful activities. Below I have provided a brief run-down of the Christmas activities that I currently have available so that you can choose the ones that best suit your classroom and needs. You’ll find Escape Rooms (a GREAT way to end the year on a high note), Math Projects, and mystery picture activities.
