Eid Classroom Activities

Step 1Class discussion with students

Getting Started

Followers of Islam, known as Muslims, fast during the holy month of Ramadan. Each day during Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset, and they cleanse themselves of impure thoughts and behavior. They participate in pious activities of charity and peace-making. It is a time of intense spiritual renewal. Every day, after sunset, families and friends share a meal to break their fasts. Eid al-Fitr is a joyous three-day festival to celebrate the end of the fasting of Ramadan. It is considered one of Islam’s major holidays. Eid al-Fitr means "festival of breaking the fast". The dates of Ramadan and Eid are different every year and in every country, because it follows the Muslim calendar and lunar cycle.

In the early morning of Eid, Muslims gather outside or at mosques for a sermon and prayer. After the Eid prayer, Muslims visit family and friends and exchange gifts. The prayers, feasts, and festivals last all three days. In most Muslim countries, all 3-days of Eid are an official government and school holiday.

  • What did you already know about Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr?
