Take your class on a holiday journey around the world, all while focusing on Close Reading and Opinion Writing skills and Common Core content standards.
Students get their own suitcase, passport, map, and travel guide book as they "travel" to learn about how holidays are celebrated around the world. They do Close Readings of up to 10 different countries/continents, and then complete an opinion writing assignment to this prompt:
“In your opinion, in which part of the world would you most like to visit to celebrate the holidays?”
This resource includes:
-A Holidays Around the World suitcase to keep all of their work in
-A Passport with a cover, personal info and photo I.D. page, and pages for stamps
-Passport stamps to be earned for each place they visit
-A Travel Map for students to create a key of the places they visit
-A “Travel Guide Book” with Close Reading passages on how 10 different countries/continents celebrate the holidays (single space to save paper, or double spaced to leave room for annotating)
-Pre-writing tools for brainstorming, outlining, rough drafts, and editing/revising
-Final Draft writing stationary for each country/continent (students use the writing paper for the place they choose as their favorite). Paper comes with primary dotted lines or regular lines.
Hope your students enjoy their educational trip around the world!
