Title: ASL : Reviewing Holidays and Question Words

This novice mid to novice high ASL activity provides students an opportunity to practice vocabulary related to holidays and celebrations as well as asking questions. Students start with a quick warm-up in which they review how to use American Sign Language to stay each holiday. Then, students use the provided cards to play a game similar to Go Fish in which students ask for holidays rather than numbers.  After the Go Fish game, students will use a series of prepared question cards to practice using question words while conversing with peers. The holiday and question activities can be used together or separately depending on the goals for each classroom.
