It's a Miracle!

In this unique Chanukah lesson plan, students will place the different miracles of Chanukah alongside their own life experience in order to shed light on what miracles look like in the 21st century. Using a collaborative documentary making experience, students will create a bridge between Chanukah history and modern-day miracles. They will interview friends, family, and community members, using the historical Chanukah story as a lens through which they will realize the many miracles that surround them today.

A complete classroom lesson plan including background for teachers, step by step procedure, and differentiation options. The lesson plan is available in PDF form.
