Teacher To Do:
I've also provided you with a "Teacher To Do" sheet to help keep you organized. On the sheet, I provide you with the materials you will need for the souvenir, along with book suggestions (with links) and web resources about each holiday (with links).

PowerPoint Presentation for Each Country:

You will find a PowerPoint presentation for each country included in this download, as well.

The HUGE PowerPoint includes:

- facts about each holiday
- an audio of how to say "hello" in each country
- vivid, real photographs of different landmarks and scenery from each country

Ticket To Anywhere:
After students learn about all of the different holidays from Globe Trot Scott, they will receive a "ticket to anywhere." They will be able to choose the holiday/country they enjoyed learning about the most and will go there to "visit." Students will record what they see, do, and eat in their personal travel journal.

Passport:
If you want to have students travel along with Scott on his great adventures, you can now find a passport included in this resource. There are stamps included so students can get each country "stamped" as they visit.

Can You Spot Globe Trot Scott?
This is an excellent activity to complete after learning about all of the different holidays. For this activity, you will give students photographs from Globe Trot Scott's travels. Have students look closely at the photographs to locate Globe Trot Scott. Then, have them determine where he was when the picture was taken based on the clues in the picture. They can write their observations on the recording sheet.

Other Sheets Included:
