Everyone knows the story of Chanukah, but how many kids can explain the background of how and when it occurred? This mini-unit will enable students to think about Chanukah within the context of Jewish and world history, involving details from the rise of Alexander the Great and the fall of the Persian Empire, the Targum Hashivim and Jewish life in Alexandria, and the oppression by the Seleucid Greeks in Judea. Along with an engaging five-page full color student handout, a teacher's edition containing a lesson plan and video links is also included.

For the best learning experience, double sided, full color printing is recommended.
