CREATE A HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD SCRAPBOOK PROJECT
In this pack is a Holidays Around the World Scrapbook that you can use in a variety of ways depending on time allotted and the age of your students.
The first version has the words underlined that you can use as quick reading passages and then have students color the two symbols in the boxes. These also serve as the answer keys for the second version.
The second version has students filling in the answers, they can use the reading passages as a guide, and then draw their own symbols related to the holiday.
There is a cover for students to decorate and then attach all the pages to make a Holidays Around the World Booklet. I like to use ribbon or twine to attach the pages of the booklet so that it looks festive.

SET UP A HOLIDAY WRITING CENTER
A fun holiday writing center activity is to print out the postcard templates (back to back) on cardstock. I’ve included twenty photo options to use for the front side! Just print in black and white and the photos will still look fabulous! There are also a holiday scene in black and white for them to color if you prefer. Then have students write a note to a family member or a friend telling what they did during that holiday or what they experienced and learned while visiting that country. I've also included "A Letter to Santa" template and example.

HOLIDAY PASSPORTS
A fun activity is to create a pretend passport for students. Just copy the number of pages you need depending on which countries you are visiting. Each time they have visited a new country, have the students color the corresponding flag.

HOLIDAY SCAVENGER HUNT ACTIVITY
Students will love this fun scavenger hunt to learn about these holidays around the world. This unit includes many reading passages, organizers, acrostic fact charts, and holiday posters with real-life photos to post in the classroom with more than 150 pages with still more activities and holiday fun to come! Using the scavenger hunt organizers and a clipboard students act as detectives to track down the answers to the questions.

Each holiday includes a reading passage, scavenger hunt organizer, acrostic fact chart, and holiday photo poster. This can be used as a scavenger hunt to get the kiddos moving around the room. It could also be used as a holiday centers activity. The holiday posters with real-life photos make a beautiful bulletin board display too.

Scavenger Hunt Steps:
1. Place the reading passages and holiday photo posters in six spots around the classroom.
2. Students read the passage about each holiday and travel around the room to answer the questions on the scavenger hunt organizers.
3. For an extra challenge, copy the holiday acrostic fact charts on the backside of each organizer and have students write one fact beside each letter for that holiday.
4. Come back together as a class to discuss their answers.
5. You could also set it up as a learning station or center activity where students read about each holiday, respond to questions on the organizers, and then complete the flip books.

This is a wonderful way to get students actively involved with the information literally by getting them up and out of their seats. It’s perfect for partners or group work.

Little prep work to save you time:
Print posters and organizers
Copy the scavenger hunt organizers and acrostic fact charts (back-to-back)
Post posters around the classroom (or at stations/centers)
Assign partners or groups
Hand out scavenger hunt organizers and clipboards
Set timer (about 5-10)
Have students rotate to the next spot
