The Story of Esther


The story of Esther is the basis of the Jewish holiday Purim.  This story is told in the Old Testament of the Bible.  These activities would be great for self-study, homeschool, or a classroom.  Also, these are perfect for dual language, immersion, and bilingual classrooms.  They could be used by high school language classes as well.
