This activity will keep students engaged while allowing them to learn important information about five countries around the world.
The content covered will incorporate both Social Studies and English/Language Arts. Students love making these cubes! A great way to practice skills, learn something new, and have fun all at the same time.
The activities on the cube can span over a week! Each country has a two page Information sheet that is great for research. Then students have the opportunity for a small reading response activity before completing the information for the country on the side of the cube. Students will fill out a page of information for each country each day and at the end assemble the cube for a great artifact of their learning to share with parents. This is a great activity to share with parents at Winter Holiday Parties and Christmas parties and activities throughout December.
The countries included in this activity are:
The unit is set to take approximately a week so it isn't too long and it is low to NO PREP for you as a teacher.
Wishing everyone a happy holiday season!
