These New Year's student choice cross-curricular activities for middle school students are perfect for celebrating and learning about the world's New Year's traditions in your classroom!

They are great as extension or early-finisher activities, or given as take-home independent practice work.

This packet includes a choice board of 9 New Year's activities, plus all of the links and printables needed to complete the activities.

Students can choose from activities like:

My New Year’s Day

Read about the history of New Year’s. Many believe what you do on this day sets the tone for your entire year. Write a poem or paragraph describing a perfect New Year's Day in your writing journal.

Compare and Contrast

Read about Chinese New Year. Compare and contrast it to an American New Year. Put your ideas in a Venn Diagram or Double Bubble thinking map.

My Year-End Review

Design a 5-slide presentation that highlights some of your favorite memories of this year. It should include something from home, school, and your extracurricular activities.
