I created this unit to teach holidays around the world this semester for Social Studies.
This six week unit includes reading passages, map activities, crafts activities, templates, and more.
The holidays covered are:
Chinese New Year
Three Kings Day
This bundle includes a close reading passage for each holiday; an activity page to go with each passage (activities include writing responses, crafts, crossword puzzle; one activity per holiday;) a cover sheet if you choose to have the students make construction paper folders to hold all of their work; compare / contrast template; graphic organizer fact collection sheet; country label cards for students to put in their folders and larger, color country cards for you to add to your classroom map; one map assignment for each country (students will need access to an atlas to complete); bingo template for end of unit; memory match cards for review.
This bundle gives you everything you need to get started on your six week holiday unit. Can be supplemented with picture books, read alouds, or videos about each holiday.
Created for my third grade students but applicable for fourth or fifth graders as well.
