Why you'll love this resource:

  • Your students will enjoy learning about the traditions of other countries!
  • It's an easy way to incorporate social studies with reading.
  • There are enough materials here to use this each day in December!
  • It's a huge time saver as everything is print and go.
  • The Country Research Project gives students practice researching information and using technology to compile information.
  • You can do the entire book for reading time or jigsaw the information (small groups read certain countries information and then share out). If you are short on time but have parent help, you can run the different countries as centers where students learn about the countries at each center.
  • If you're feeling especially ambitious, you can add art projects, music, artifacts to share (if you or the students have any), and food.
  • It can be used in a number of ways, for guided reading, center times, as independent reading, and even as homework.
