The holiday season is right around the corner and with it are two of our special seasonal courses: A Very GamED Christmas and Home for the Holidays!
A Very GamED Christmas
Join us as we discover the true meaning of Christmas! We start with the biblical meaning of Christmas where we will learn about the nativity and birth of Jesus. Then, journey with us as we explore Advent and discover what a Jesse tree is before uncovering the reason why we put up a Christmas tree. And finally we share the story of St. Nick and close our course with the great GamED Academy bake off. Can you wow us with your favorite Christmas cookie recipe or Gingerbread House? This is going to be a very GamED Christmas indeed!
Home for the Holidays
Want to wow your family and Thanksgiving guests with your knowledge of this special holiday? Take a trip back in time and discover what Thanksgiving is and why we still celebrate it today. Learn who the Pilgrims were, what the Mayflower was, and how Americans celebrate Thanksgiving today. Then take part in our own Thanksgiving parade! How elaborate can you make your Thanksgiving float? The second half of this course has us taking a look at how the world celebrates the holiday season. We will begin by taking a look at Christmas traditions around the world – Does everyone eat turkey? What’s the deal with Christmas crackers? KFC for Christmas dinner – really? Then, we’ll move onto New Year and discover how different countries around the world welcome in the New Year.
