PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

December is a crazy month for teachers. This Holidays Around the World Unit will make your job not only easier, but also more enjoyable. If you are searching for quality December activities that require little to no prep and are engaging, fun and educational then you'll want to download this unit now.

TOP 3 REASONS YOU NEED THIS:
❶ It doesn't focus on a specific holiday or religion so it's perfect for a public school setting.
❷ It's jam packed with different activities to pick from so it's a great value. You can use one activity alone or use several to last you until winter break.
❸ The activities are open-ended making it easier to differentiate and make modifications and enabling you to use this in multiple grade levels.

TEACHERS HAVE SAID THEY LOVE THIS RESOURCE BECAUSE:
❤ "This was fantastic for the week before winter break. My third graders were fully engaged in these lessons, and I felt like I was doing meaningful teaching during a crazy week. Thank you for this!!!" (Kristen, 3rd Grade)
❤ "This was a perfect unit for Language Arts in December! My students loved learning about holiday traditions in other countries. Thank you for including book ideas to use with each country." (Kimberly, 4th Grade)
❤ "While every other teacher in my school was complaining about their class being out of control I took great pride in the fact that my kids were enjoying learning about other cultures. My class was seriously focused and on task right up to the vacation because of your amazing unit. Best of all they were excited to learn and felt like they were doing 'fun holiday projects." (Jessica, 2nd grade)
