May Baskets

In Ms. Kravitz's 7th-grade Reading and Writing class, the students delved into the fascinating world of May baskets. They explored two articles that shed light on the origin of May baskets, their various celebrations throughout history, and the profound impact they have had on society. Ms. Kravitz shared her personal experience, and recounted the delightful memories of crafting these baskets alongside her mother and secretly delivering them to their neighbors.

To make the lesson even more engaging, Ms. Kravitz brought in a variety of materials, including scrapbook paper, ribbons, washi tape, and vibrant flowers. With enthusiasm, she demonstrated the step-by-step process of creating these charming May baskets, captivating the students' interest. The activity proved to be a delightful and enjoyable conclusion to their mini unit on this unique tradition.
