Hanukkah Fun: The Dreidel Game

Students create dreidels, traditional Hanukkah toys, from common materials and play the dreidel game!

America celebrates Thanksgiving Day today.

Although the holiday has been celebrated for over 200 years, the fourth Thursday of November didn’t become the official Thanksgiving Day until 1941, when Franklin Roosevelt signed the holiday into Federal law for the first time. Up until that time, the date had been in flux.

You will work in groups to investigate some federal holidays and learn why those holidays are observed. Then your group will choose a woman it thinks should be honored with a federal holiday, and create a presentation to convince your classmates to nominate that woman.
