Middle Elementary Christmas Activities

Acrostic Poems Gifs

Have students use PicCollage (or PicKids for younger students) to create an acrostic poster on a word related to Christmas. Next, have your students use an app like Lumyer to layer on falling snow or other holiday effect. Then they save their creation as a movie or an animated gif!

Christmas ASCII Art Challenges

Have your students attempt some Christmas images with ASCII. ASCII artwork is created with the symbols and characters that you have available to you on your computer keyboard.

Upper Elementary Christmas Activities

More Christmas Coding

Students can work on their coding skills with Santa Tracker, or by programming a winter story or game on Scratch.

Augmented Reality Projects

Use 3dbear, an iOS App or another augmented reality creation tool to let students layer virtual representation over real spaces. They can create their own winter scene, add virtual props to a Christmas play or create whatever else they can think of! 

Christmas Price Index

For 39 years, PNC has calculated the prices of the 12 gifts from the classic song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” The PNC Christmas Price Index® remains a whimsical holiday tradition. After taking a look around you can send your students into Sheets to make some graphs with the information.
