Teaching Legends With The Legend of the Poinsettia With Freebie

If you're like me, during the holiday season, I love to decorate my home with poinsettias. Throughout the years, these brilliant crimson star-shaped plants have become a popular symbol of Christmas. In this post, the focus is on teaching the elements of legends with The Legend of the Poinsettia.

The Flor de Nochebuena or Flowers of the Night are native to Mexico. The association of the poinsettia with Christmas dates back to the 16th century with the legend of a young girl who was too poor to provide baby Jesus with a gift celebrating his birthday. Pepita gathered weeds along the roadside and placed them at the church alter. The weeds turned into beautiful crimson blooms which were called poinsettias.

Your upper elementary students are going to love learning about theme with the story "The Legend of the Poinsettia" by Tomie dePaola. Your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade students can watch a video about the author, work on writing, do a fun craft activity, enjoy the FREE downloads, and work on a digital Google Drive resource with the ideas presented here. Christmas or Holidays Around the World can also be incorporated into this book and lesson. {second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth graders, freebie}
