Celebrate Kwanzaa in the United States

Kwanzaa, established in 1966, is a holiday in which African-Americans remember their heritage and remind people of the importance of sharing with family and friends. Kwanzaa begins on December 26 and continues for 7 days. In this lesson, children will learn about the celebration and will discuss the seven principles on which Kwanzaa is based: unity, self-determination, collective responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. This lesson helps children understand how different people might celebrate the holidays during the same time as they do, but in a different way.
