PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 258 page strategically linked thematic unit Christmas Around the World is stuffed with learning!

Twenty countries of study are included and may easily be used in a mix and match fashion, or if time allows, use all 20 for a comprehensive world-wide trip.

A Scrapbook/Passport Book is included for each student to make to keep as a world traveler memento. The unit culminates with a tribute to “Peace on Earth” and will leave each child with a feeling of love for their fellowmen. Do not miss out on this great unit!

* NOTE if you are a teacher of grades other than K-1, you might look at our Christmas World Wide Unit. It is all of the "Stuff" without the Common Core Lessons.

I loved this unit and so did the kids. I got great feedback on my end of the unit bulletin board!

The only thing I would say that could make this the ultimate around the world unit is to add some powerpoints or some videos. I had to go online to get more resources.

Overall....excellent. I would recommend this to anyone!

WOW! This is a HUGE unit. It was difficult to choose which to use... great information! I also purchased the Holidays Around the World unit. I have students who 'don't celebrate', so it worked nicely with SS standards as world and cultural traditions.

I am so excited to use this unit! I teach 1st and 2nd grades and this is a great unit for K-1. I especially love the comprehension pieces and how clearly the common core connections are. I will be pulling in more crafts, videos and visuals from some of my other resources, but overall a very detailed, beautiful unit!
