UPDATED! This is a great way to turn your classroom into a multicultural celebration for the month of December!
This Christmas around the World pack includes 7 nonfiction selections about winter holidays around the world. (Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, St. Lucia Day, Christmas and Three Kings Day in Argentina, Australian Christmas, Diwali, Japanese New Year). These selections are written at a high fourth grade reading level but can be used in grades 3-5. NEW: I have also included links to videos to give more information about each holiday!
Students are divided into groups. Each group is given a winter holiday to research. Then they are required to set up a holiday table for their classmates to learn about their assigned holiday. Then students take their passports and travel around the classroom, getting stamps and writing a fact about each holiday. So much fun and so informative!
