A Festive Frontier: Christmas on the early Panhandle-PlainsGrades 2-5By the mid-1800s, Christmas traditions encompassed many of the same festivities and customs as it does today. But for the pioneers and cowboys in the desolate Panhandle of Texas, Christmas was a much simpler affair. This distance learning program will focus on the origins of several different holiday traditions, along with some unique to the Panhandle. Using historical photos, music and artifacts, we will explore Christmas in the Panhandle between 1890 - 1910. Students will then make a small holiday-themed craft for the home or classroom.
Times and dates are available to fit any schedule. The program lasts approximately 50 minutes. Cost is $75.00 per site.
