Grades: 1-2 The Whole-School Holiday lessons make up a spiral curriculum, in which each lesson focuses on a different aspect of Jewish holiday, value, or key subject.

In this lesson students will learn the different objects that are associated with Purim. Each of these objects connects us to the Purim story. Each of these objects connects us to the senses. We see the different costumes, we hear the Megillah, we taste and smell the Hamentashen, we touch the grogger. Celebrating Purim encompasses our whole body.
