Christmas Mosaic Craftivity

Do you need a cute Christmas holiday activity for your kids?  Check out this mosaic art project!  Students tear small pieces of construction paper apart and them down to the holiday picture.  When they are finished, the project looks like a mosaic.

You can find this Christmas mosaic activity here!

Here is an example from one of my 5th graders!  There are a total of 14 different pictures to choose from.





I think the lights would be cute strung along in the hallway to actually look like Christmas lights.

Print and GO - 5 U.S. Regions Scavenger Hunt Bundle



Combine literacy and social studies while letting your students have fun! Your students will love these 5 scavenger hunts about the U.S. Regions.  This is a bundle of the 5 regions into one, so you can click print and have a great supplemental activity for your class. Each region contains 25 task cards for a total of 120 task cards and 120 questions for the bundle.  Your students will learn at least one fact for state and also national monuments, famous buildings, national parks and tourist attractions. 

Slide1You can use these cards in anyway you want for your classroom, but this is how I use them in my class. 

1.  Print the region that you are currently working on in class.  
2.  Cut the task cards apart and print the student questions for students.  
3.  Tape the cards around your classroom or hallway. 
4.  Let the students hunt for the cards and answer the questions on their sheets. 
5.  Answer keys are included for quick grading. 
My students beg me to keep working on this activity and I really truly believe that the movement of walking around the classroom searching for cards helps them remember more facts. 
Here is an example of the task cards and questions from the Northeast Region.
