diigo iconWhat’s new this week in my Diigo bookmarks? Two super cool Christmas sites that can be used to teach and learn about the upcoming holiday. Check ’em out below!

» The History Channel

A fabulous website full of information pertaining to Christmas. Topics include Christmas Facts, World Traditions, the Christmas Truce of 1914, Christmas Tree Trivia and much more! There are also numerous videos available—The History of Christmas, Christmas Trees and The Evolution of Santa Claus as well as several about Hanukkah and Kwanza.

» Christmas at the White House

A very detailed resource guide for teachers about Christmas in the White House. This PDF file is filled with with background information, numerous printables, discussion questions, writing prompts, puzzles and other activity ideas that can be adapted to various grade levels. What a great way to integrate history into your December activities!
