These activity sheets for 8 -12 year olds explore how different countries celebrate Christmas. The sheets provide children with a variety of research, art, craft and cooking activities designed to give children the opportunity to examine the Christmas traditions and customs of other countries and cultures.
The activities are ideal for group work with each group looking at one country. The group can choose an art or craft activity and a recipe relating to the country from the sheets. At the end of the unit of work a presentation day and a cooking and tasting day can be planned.
Some of the research activities incorporate the use of the Internet as a research tool and a comprehensive list of Online References relating to Christmas is included.
