Around Christmas time it is important and FUN to teach your students' about traditions from other countries.Get interactive, show videos, bring in food, study traditions.
Choose countries to learn about; for example, Mexico, Israel, the Netherlands. Have your students fill out an "application" for a passport to visit other countries. The students use this passport to fill our their personal information and on each page in their passport they write what stop number it was, what country they visited, and important information they learned about that country. There is also pace for you to stamp it or possibly have the students draw a picture that represents that country. (maybe the flag/countries symbol)
