It's such a good feeling when Christmas craziness starts in December and you remember that you're all planned and ready to go!

My goal with this big unit is to share that feeling with you - this collection has all the art and literacy you will need for December as you explore cultural celebrations around the world.

Over 100 pages of literacy booklets for each country, plus step by step art projects!

As a busy teacher myself, I know how difficult it can be to plan during the busy Christmas season. We need rigorous, interesting, but easy-prep activities to get us through December.

Note: There are FREE Christmas Tree Art Project and Printables in the dowloadable preview for this product!

This pack contains a comprehensive and engaging exploration of celebrations around the world.

There are 8 Christmas crafts that are easy and require very few materials. Each has step by step photo directions.

Each country also has 12 pages of no-prep literacy printables that are differentiated so you can choose those appropriate for all of your students. These are no-prep, and each reinforces the main concepts and traditional symbols and activities.

The literacy pages are differentiated and repetitive in nature for each country to promote independence and mastery.

NOTE If you are looking for ONLY the art projects without the literacy printables, you can see them all by

Here are the details:

8 Different Countries and Cultures Christmas is explored in Mexico, Australia, Germany, Canada, England, Sweden. Diwali is explored in India, and Chinese New Year is explored in China. For each country, there is one craft and 12 literacy printables for a thorough exploration of different aspects of the culture.

The literacy printables are created for different levels of writing ability, so each booklet can be created to look the same, but contain differing levels of difficulty inside.

Step By Step Photos Each lesson has step-by-step photos and descriptions to walk you through the process. Show this page to students as they work so they can use it as reference!

Please click the PREVIEW button above to see many examples of the artwork included as well as the many activities. You will also find some free sample pages to use with your students!

The clip art used in these sets are also available if you wish to create your own printables and decor items.
