This Christmas Around the World for Older Kids: Italy Freebie is a great way to integrate reading strategies and social studies concepts, while learning about something fun and thematic during the month of December.
Specifically it contains:
A Traditions from Italy Passage with Comprehension Questions (and key)
A Map of Italy with Map Skills Questions (and key)
A World Map and Italy’s Flag Worksheet
A Scrapbook Page to Record Key Facts (and key)
Although this mini-unit can stand alone as a separate activity, I do hope you’ll check out the complete Christmas Around the World for Older Kids resource. It is an awesome time saver, with copy and go pages for December. It comes with 12 different country mini-units (in addition to the freebie on Italy here), as well as a trifold Christmas Traditions research unit that will keep your kids happily learning before Winter Break. Detailed Teacher Notes are also included.
