  • letter from a snowman introducing the country and highlighting a special part of the holiday
  • greeting poster for students to color

  • On holiday open-ended notes’ pages
  • writing paper

I see this resource is part of a bundle, should I buy the bundle or just the countries I want to cover with my students?

There are a few items that you will only get if you purchase the bundle. However, if you are only planning on covering a few holidays, it may be to your benefit to purchase the exact celebrations you need.

Each celebration/country is $2 on its own. If you plan on covering 8 or more holidays, it is cheaper to purchase the bundle.

What other countries and holidays do you offer?

This resource is available for the following countries and celebrations:

1. Christmas in Australia

2. Christmas in Canada

3. Chinese New Year in China

4. Christmas in England

5. Christmas in France

6. Christmas in Germany

7. Diwali in India

8. Hanukkah in Israel

9. Christmas in Italy

10. Las Posadas in Mexico

11. Christmas in the Netherlands

12. Christmas in Russia

13. St. Lucia’s Day in Sweden

14. Christmas in the United States

15. Kwanzaa in the United States

Should my whole team buy your resources to build our unit?

Yes! Each country/celebration comes with the same types of resources, so you can create consistency throughout your unit.

Are there any benefits to purchasing the full unit instead of building my own with particular countries?

Yes, the following items are included as bonuses with the bundle: teacher guide with information about each holiday, book list, passport and stamps template, and original crafts

I don’t know much about holidays and traditions that I don’t celebrate. How will I know what to teach my students?

You can also find in-depth information for the traditions and customs mentioned on the internet or in books such as Christmas Around the World by Mary Lankford. For each country, you also receive a letter/note from a snowman that highlights a tradition or two from each celebration.

What is the best way to utilize this resource in a kindergarten or first grade classroom?

Covering Christmas Around the World in early elementary classrooms can be tough. There is a lot of information being thrown at your students. I suggest you

  • Introduce the country with the snowman letter
  • Read a picture book about the holiday (fiction or non-fiction)
  • Complete the On Holiday… pages where students write about the location and complete a fill-in-the-blank page on customs
  • Create a print and go craft for students to keep in their ‘suitcase’
  • Follow-up with a snow globe ornament, word search, or writing activity

Are there crafts included in this resource?

Yes! There is one craft per country/celebration. All the crafts are in a print and go format, meaning you need no additional materials aside from paper, crayons, and glue.

I want my students to “travel” around the world as we complete this unit. How can I do that?

Many teachers choose to set up their chairs like seats on a plane or train and have students “travel” to each destination.

Another fun way to incorporate traveling is to use brown paper bags from a grocery store as suitcases! Students can store all their materials and crafts for your unit in their “suitcase” and take everything home at the end of the month.

I don’t have time to do a full Christmas Around the World unit. Do you have any quick no-prep Christmas resources?

If you’re looking for a no-prep pack about Christmas to use for morning work or send home as a winter break pack, you may be interested in my Kindergarten Christmas Around the World No Prep Worksheets. Resource Ranch offers a similar resource for first grade
