I had so much fun putting this together!! I spent three lovely years living in England, so designing these materials was a joy!
There are 13 Close Read informational passages about different Christmas traditions in England.
The passages are in full page form so you can use them for posters or assemble them into a booklet.
There is a set of these in color and another set in black and white.
After reading each passage, there is a follow up comprehension check printable.
Color Picture Cards for each of the topics (double set for matching games)
Comprehension Question Cards (I suggest using these with the picture cards)
Writing Printable for What did you learn about Christmas in England?

Vocabulary and Topics include:

I love using this along with my other Christmas Around the World packets as a shared activity for a group of classrooms. It is fun for each classroom to focus on one of the countries and then have a day of sharing and learning!!
