The Elves Go On Strike!

This The Elves Go On Strike! lesson plan also includes:

The elves have had enough! Use this engaging Christmas-themed activity to help scholars calculate elapsed time. Learners watch a short podcast detailing a serious situation at the North Pole: the elves are on strike. Discuss the clip, possibly even introducing labor unions. Explain that Santa has decided to award a $50 bonus to all elves who work over eight hours in a day. Partners evaluate several elf time cards to determine which ones should get the bonus. This is an excellent way to incorporate labor disputes into the main objective. Provide analog clocks to learners who need assistance. Check out the online interactive links for those finished early.
