These Christmas Around the World passages introduce students to how Christmas is celebrated in different countries. This is an add-on pack for my full unit for Christmas Around the World. It can be used by itself, though! Eleven different countries that celebrate Christmas (plus Hanukkah in Israel) are included. There is one passage page, plus one follow-up comprehension page.
*There is now a digital component included in this resource. The passages have been digitally reformatted and converted, and they are now available in Google Slides. The link to the Google Slides document is on page 4 of the PDF.
There are eleven countries included.
- The Netherlands
- The Philippines
Each country gets a 1-page passage with pictures to represent the holiday, followed up with a page for questions (3 text-based questions and 2 fact writing lines).
I am adding these passages to my store to accompany this full unit. Check out the FULL unit here!
Reading ranges for this would be a whole-group read in first grade and an independent read in second grade and third grade.
