Product Description
The Christmas around the World - World Holidays Research Project is a perfect way to implement Google Apps, Google Drive, Chromebooks, 1:1 or BYOD and high-interest research into your classroom! Students will select a country to research and create a research-based eBook featuring the country’s unique holiday traditions and events!

This project includes research-ready resources for the paperless classroom!

Can you edit student handouts and rubrics?

YES! Teachers can log into a google account, regardless if they use Google Classroom or not, and access the shared google drive links. Once you are logged into a Google account and access the link to the student handouts, you will be prompted to copy them into your own Google Drive. Resources can then be edited in Google Drive or downloaded and edited using Microsoft Word.

The research-based Christmas around the World eBook Project includes the following resources:

Access to an attractive New Google Site featuring whimsical animated pictures and rich images featuring Christmas celebrations that occur throughout the world! Your students will be instantly engaged!

Students will either select a country to research or teachers may opt to assign their country of choice. Over 56 websites have been bookmarked for this project! Students can access all research links easily from the project website.

The following four countries have specific websites bookmarked: the Philippines, Scotland, Russia and France. There are 8 quality digital resource links for students to explore for each country - including 7 websites providing factual information on the country’s celebration of Christmas and one video or interactive site to deepen students’ knowledge of the topic.

Interested in including a different country as a research topic? Not a problem!

The bookmarked sites include over 15 Christmas around the World websites. Each website includes links and information for ALL countries throughout the world who celebrate the winter holidays or specifically, Christmas! Students have the ability to choose ANY of these countries as their research topic!

This resource includes a digital note-taking handout with guiding questions in order to provide structure and focus to their research. Using the guiding questions on the digital note-taking handout, students will specifically note the country’s unique traditions, holiday events, traditional foods and holiday music associated with their celebration of Christmas.

Students will compare and contrast their chosen country’s events and traditions with America’s celebration of Christmas. Students are also instructed that they can choose to compare/contrast their country’s celebration of Christmas with ANY holiday (including holidays that some students and their families may observe instead of celebrating Christmas).

Following their research, students will use Google Slides in order to create a Christmas Around the World eBook complete with representative images, background information, events and traditions, etc. featuring their researched country’s celebration of the Christmas holiday!

Directions are included on how to make their eBooks interactive by hyperlinking a supplementary video, a website providing additional information about their country, and/or a link to listen to cultural holiday songs!

A project model eBook is provided based on Christmas in Spain! The project example will excite and motivate students to conduct their research and gather information in order to create their own!
