Christmas is my favorite holiday and the perfect time to learn about different cultures and traditions around the world. Most school districts encourage learning about other cultures and Christmas around the world is a super fun way to meet these goals!
Use these materials to learn all about Christmas in Italy! I especially enjoy teaching about La Befana!
There are nine informational text passages to learn about different traditions in Italy.
There is a set in color and another in black and white.
After each text passage, there is a matching themed comprehension printable!
Writing Printables (2)
Compare and Contrast Printables (6)
Read, Draw and Color Printables (6)
Matching Activity (26 cards)
Comprehension Cards (16) I explain how to use these along with the color picture cards for a fun follow up center or small group activity!
Some of the topics include:
The flag of Italy, La Befana, Babbo Natale, Panettone, Pandoro, Treats for Babbo Natale, Caroling, Bagpipers and the nativity scene.
Every page is represented in the preview. I feel like it's important for you to see every single page...that way you can be sure it fits your needs and the needs of your students! I love creating resources!
I have included a passage about the nativity scene and it's tradition in Italy. If you wish to leave this out you can.
