Objective(s) (Connecting the content areas) The students will discuss Israel; it’s population, religion and holidays during December. The students will play a Chanukah game, sing Chanukah songs, and dance the Hora, a traditional Israeli dance. Description of Lesson/Activities The students will come into class with traditional Israeli music playing. The music will be instrumental and will play while attendance is taken. The students will be directed to take a look at the flag of Israel. The students will discuss with the students the similarities and differences from their flag and the U. S. flag side by side. Background of the typical “child” of Israel will be given. Discussions of how this is different from us will be given at this time as well. The students will be asked about their current knowledge of “Chanukah”, the mostcelebrated December holiday in Israel. The students will be broken into smaller groups to play DREYDL after the teacher has given the rules. After each student has had an opportunity to spin the dreydl, they will be collected and the students will move into a large circle in the classroom that includes all students. The students will explain the steps of the HORA, a traditional dance of celebration in Israel. It will be explained how important going in the CORRECT DIRECTION will be during the dance. At the conclusion of the dance, the students will return to their seats and they will listen to the song “On This Night”. This song will be used to show the students the idea of the menorah and how it is lit each night – as was previously explained in the Chanukah discussion. Nine students will be selected to act as the candles of the menorah (on as the “messenger candle”) and the remaining students will observe in what order the candles are lit.
