Product Description
This Christmas / Winter Holidays Around the World Scavenger Hunt is perfect for the week before winter break. This product includes 2 sets of Task Cards. One devoted to Christmas Around the World, and the other Holidays Around the World.

With time at such a premium, learning how other countries celebrate Christmas sometimes becomes just too much to fit into our already busy days! But Not Anymore! Students hunt for task cards explaining how Christmas is celebrated in countries around the world. If you already do a Christmas Around the World Unit, this makes a very nice supplemental activity!

Countries that are included with Christmas Holiday Scavenger Hunt Cards:

• United States
• Mexico
• France
• Germany
• Italy
• England
• China
• Australia
• Canada
• Denmark
• Sweden

An additional Task Card set is included entitled "Winter Holidays Around the World." This second set includes all of the above set with the addition of these holidays:

• Ramadan
• Hanukkah
• Kwanzaa
• Winter Solstice

If your objective is learning about Christmas around the World, use the first set. If you'd like to be a bit more inclusive, then include the second set in your hunt. If you choose to use the Winter Holidays Set, simply include the last page (Task cards #21 - #24) to the student recording sheets. Both sets are perfect for those days before winter break!

These task cards can be used as traditional task cards or can be uploaded to either Schoology or Google Slides. It’s an easy way to incorporate technology into either your social studies or language arts blocks. Have students access the task cards through either Schoology or Google slides, print out the recording sheets, and have them handy for whenever or however you choose to use them. No prep necessary, answer key included.

My students love scavenger hunts of any kind! Students attach their Scavenger Hunt Questions/Answers Sheet to clipboards, and the fun begins! Cards are hidden around the classroom, and students must search the room to find all twenty cards to correctly answer the questions on their Answer Sheets. We then come together as a class to review and discuss the answers. Another option is to simply use the Scavenger Hunt as an activity for early finishers to work on throughout the week.

Cards are “hidden” around the room “in plain sight.” All cards are located within a child’s eye view, so it’s not necessary for students to handle the cards. Of course, depending on your class, you might want to hide them in a few more challenging areas!

Simply print out the Scavenger Hunt Cards, cut, and laminate. I mount each card on to cardstock or construction paper before laminating to make them extra sturdy. They can be easily stored on binder rings, in baggies, or in a folder with the Question/Answer Sheets. No Color Printer? No Problem! Students have just as much fun completing the Scavenger Hunt if the cards are printed in grayscale. In fact, printing them in grayscale makes them just a bit more difficult to find during the hunt! Saves a lot of ink, too!

Included are:

• 24 Scavenger Hunt Cards ( 20 + 4 )
• Student Questions/Answers Sheets
• Answer Key
