HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD: A (High Level Thinking) Research Project
If your students are going to be researching Christmas or Holidays around the world, this project is an excellent way for them to use their newly acquired information to a higher level (Yay Blooms!).
Students will research the holiday traditions of a chosen country using the research template.
Once students have learned all about their chosen country, they will take the new information and compose an acrostic poem describing their country’s holiday traditions and customs.
Students can present their poems and display them for all to see.
