Children LOVE to learn about other cultures and holidays that are celebrated in other countries
This resource has everything you need to teach your younger students some of the winter holidays that are celebrated around the world!
Holidays Around the World can be used as an addition to an existing unit or simply by itself.
You can choose pages or work on one page a day teaching about each holiday as you go.
We usually do these as rotations between our floor partners. Each teachers chooses a holiday for the kiddos to learn about and adds a read aloud and maybe a few other details and for one entire day or an afternoon children rotate from room to room learning about all the holidays included in this packet and more.
There is a craft idea for each celebration, but I have not included a sample...just the idea. When I take pictures of the samples, I will add them to the preview!!.
Here’s What is Included:

✨ A summary sheet written in easier language about the following holidays: Christmas. Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, St. Lucia Day, La Befana, Diwali and Las Posadas and a craft idea for each holiday.
✨ Writing response sheets for each holiday.
✨ A passport and information sheets that can be used.
✨ A response writing activity for children to choose a holiday that they don’t celebrate that might be fun for them.
✨ A Compare and Contrast partner activity to chat about how they are alike and different in how they celebrate a holiday here in the US.
✨ A newly added Power Point Companion to support the pages.
✨ Fun for everyone!!!
