A Season of Great Joy in the Newspaper


Students will discover a wealth of information found in the newspaper this holiday season. Discover seasonal resources, recipes, grand events and local community happenings—all in the newspaper!

Happy Holidays

Have your students look through the newspaper for words and pictures that, in their opinion, exemplify:

  • a happy word
  • a happy person
  • a happy occasion
  • a happy group
  • a happy tradition

Sugar & Spice

Have students search through the food section of the newspaper to find a recipe that contains a spice. Then let them research the origin and current use of that spice.
