COMPLETELY UPDATED FOR 2018!
Do you want to incorporate some holiday fun into your December learning by teaching a Christmas Around The World unit? This set has printables that are just perfect for primary learners! The countries included in this set are the United States, Germany, Mexico, Italy, France, Sweden, England, Australia, and Brazil. Here is what I have included for EACH country:
1.) A digital text perfect for projecting that has real-life pictures detailing facts about the holiday season in each country
2.) A variety of fact graphic organizers to help students guide their thinking and to help them record key details
3.) Writing papers for turning the graphic organizers into informational writing (primary lines and regular lines included)
4.) Covers for combining all of the writing students do throughout the unit into a collection (both color and b&w versions included; vertical and horizontal versions included in case you want to bind the vertical fact organizers instead)
5.) EASY TO ASSEMBLE student mini-books with pictures for students to color and easy-to-read text about each country (2 sizes provided-1 requires 2 copies, the tiniest book requires just 1 copy)
6.) Full-size color version of the mini-books for the teacher to display or to turn into a class book
7.) Passport stamp book for students to collect stamps from each country as they learn
8.) World map for students to color and reference throughout the unit
7.) Souvenir suitcase craft for storing the mini-books, writing project, passport book, and map
This file was completely updated in November 2018 to include the informational texts and brand-new clip-art!
I have used this unit for the last 5 years in my own first grade classroom. It is one of my favorite units to teach all year long and the printables are first-grader tested and approved!
Please check the preview file to see what all is included! Thank you for stopping by my store!
