These Factballs are a great addition to any unit studying various Christmas traditions around the world. Use as a comprehension task, a whole group activity, as an assessment item or a Fast Finisher activity. I've used them in the past as a note-taking activity but really the ways these Factballs could be included in your classroom activities is endless! They are great for incorporating into Literacy centers (centres) as well!!
Each Factball allows students to explore the flag of each country, where the country is located, how they celebrate Christmas, how they say Christmas and what they call Santa and the food each country eats at Christmas time. The answers to each of these sections is found in the comprehension sheets provided in this resource. These fact sheets are jam packed with interesting information that children will find engaging. They are easy to read and comprehend. Please note: additional assistance with comprehension may be required for some students depending on their reading and comprehension level.
For extra effect I LOVE printing these pages onto A3 paper (sometimes coloured) and once completed hang them from the string lines in my classroom. They look amazing and are a great way to demonstrate learning to parents!
Included in this resource:
- A Factball template for each country (Australia, Brazil, Canada, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, The Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, The United States)
- Information Pages for each country, enabling students to complete the details on their Factball without the use of technology
Please see preview for further details of how to assemble these Factballs and for a visual description of this product.
