First, you need to copy the Christmas tree so that each student will have a copy, and then, you will pass out the ornaments. After that, you need to give the students directions on what to do first and then continue until they have completed their art projects. They can also draw presents under their trees and color them. They also need to write their names on their paper if they can or have someone else do it.


You can grade the students on how well they followed your directions.
