Yesterday, I posted in my Weekly Wrap-Up/Homeschool Mother’s Journal post that I was putting together a Victorian Christmas unit for J12 & that I would post those at a later date. Wellllll…it wasn’t until after I posted it that I realized just how close Christmas was! So here is a quick list of some of the links I have found.
Victorian Christmas Unit
- Read A Christmas Carol. You can find it online here along with reading comprehension questions. You can also download it for Kindle or Nook here. (You can download the FREE Kindle Reading app to read it on other devices such as your PC.)
- Here you can find a biblical lesson of A Christmas Carol.
- Make copywork from each chapter.
- Watch Charles Dickens animated biography.
- Watch video on what London was like during Dickens’ time.
- Play Survive Dickens’ London.
- You can get more great ideas here.
- Old Fashioned Victorian Christmas has tons of great links for activities & crafts.
- Make Your Own Victorian Christmas – 25 activities to do at home. And while there you can check out the history of Christmas.
- Victorian Christmas: Games & Activities. Scroll down to the bottom of that post to find links to Gifts, Food & Drink, Decorations, & Crafts!
- Here is a collection of resources from TeachersFirst.com.
- If you would like an all-in-one Victorian Christmas unit, NIA Unit Studies has one for $12.99! Included are crafts/projects, cooking, online games, literature, movies, & open ended researching for hands-on ideas. Also, includes notebooking pages & ideas for your own Victorian Christmas party!
J12 is obsessed with everything Victorian. So even though this year is supposed to be “everything Medieval” she will be studying this time period on her own. I will post about all those other finds later!
