Exploring Questions About Christmas

2nd grade GT students brainstormed answers to some puzzling questions surrounding the magic of Christmas.  Questions they considered included:

  • How does Santa fit down the chimney?
  • How does Santa deliver all the presents in just one night?
  • What makes Rudolph’s nose glow?
  • Why don’t we see Santa delivering the presents?

Next they used the Explain Everything app to record their answers. Enjoy their work below:

 James:  Jessie:
 Kara & Mykey:  Marshall:
 Olivia:  Stephanie

Finally, after everyone had a chance to complete their explanations we viewed this YouTube video of some scientists from Auckland University of Technology to see what their scientific explanations for these same questions would be.
