From the task itself on the Webquest: "Now that our class has completed reading A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, you are going to embark on a journey to ensure that Scrooge does not revert back to his miserly ways. In order to ensure this, you will work both individually and together as a team. Many of the tasks will be completed online, but some involve other skills. Follow these steps and you will help keep Scrooge from ever becoming a misanthrope again!"

These activities include: A Scavenger Hunt that provides links to various sites that enable to students to develop a deeper understanding of Victorian England as the setting of the text; a Holiday Menu (exploring cultural aspects of the holiday); Apology Letters written as Scrooge to various characters); Symbolic Tokens (to enable Scrooge to remember his lessons); all compiled as a group 'gift', which I thought was a wonderful symbol of just exactly what learning is :)

The cultural children's story project allows students to explore Native American culture through a new lens by authoring and illustrating children's stories that teach children between the ages of four and six a lesson or tale unique to Native cultural traditions. The exemplar stories are laminated, bound, and given as gifts to an area elementary school with a primarily Native student body. Student authors read the stories to the children, and the books become part of the children's classroom library. The children learn cultural traditions from a young age and see their mentors (often Native students as well) as role models and writers. The authors learn the skills to develop their stories from conception to publication to presentation.Cultural Children's Story Video Lesson

As state and local education agencies increasingly focus on serving educators with their data systems, a common challenge has arisen: identifying the critical knowledge and skills needed by teachers and administrators to use data effectively. Many states are creating data literacy and data use training programs for pre- and in-service educators without a common foundation on which to base the content. In addition, several state education agencies and educator preparation programs have begun communicating about how to create a stronger alignment between pre- and in-service training for educators regarding data use.

This book is designed to teach social skills to many different types of children, particularly those with social problems. Often labeled as having a social skills deficit, these children may be considered aggressive, socially isolated, or shy. The underlying concept is that to proceed through the expected stages of their social development, children should posses all the skills addressed by this book. Written for use by groups of children, such as a classroom or a counseling group, the activities are intended to help children in every aspect of their social development, as they relate their peers, their parents and their teachers. While many activities can be used with just one child, it is hard to argue with the concept that social skills are best learned in a social environment.

This was a fun project I did with my band to fill the few days between the Holiday Concert and the beginning of Christmas vacation.  It engaged my students by using the pep band songs they already knew and creating a story line.  It engaged the elementary students with the performance of our story.  I introduced the narrator and characters in a story which reinforced their learning of English and storytelling.  
In a couple of days my students had come up with ideas of how to portray characters that came to search for a holiday spirit.  We rehearsed the songs while our characters figured out their own blocking.
