I love teaching Christmas Around the World but strict curriculum pacing restricted me from teaching one of my favorite units. Spanning the globe (much like Santa himself), my solution became this center-based unit that I could fit in ONE DAY of strategic fun and learning.
Focusing on eleven countries with distinct customs and traditions, this unit includes all of the plans, notes, printables, and planning tips to pull off your own worldwide adventure. Have more than one day? This unit is a flexible resource that has been classroom tested, and student approved.
This unit contains:
-Detailed notes and plans for a one-day "trip" around the world including background
information and fun facts
-Informational letters from children from each country with real photographs
-Supply lists for each center and a master list of supplies
-Step-by-step center instruction cards with REAL photographs
-Photos of project samples
-Fun Food treat suggestions for each country
-Colorful printable center signs in color and black and white
-Christmas Around the World coloring book
-Printable passport stamps in color and black and white for each country
Countries included are: Australia, Netherlands, Italy, England, Canada, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, France, China, and Israel.
Doing rotations with your team? Look no further! This unit would be great for team rotations or buddy class activities!
