What an educator who has used this resource says about it:
♥ " LOVE these Christmas greetings. . .not only do they provide how to say "Merry Christmas", but each sheet includes the name of the country, the flag and a mini map. . .great resource for a Christmas Greeting bulletin board." -- Nicole B.
These Merry Christmas posters represent 26 countries on 5 continents and present greetings in 23 languages. (English is represented by 2 countries and Spanish by 3 countries.) The countries represented in this resource were selected because they have large Christian populations and because they provide geographical diversity. The countries are:
* South Africa
* United Kingdom
* United States
The posters have borders in either red or green. In the upper left corner of each poster, there is a map of the country and in the upper right corner, the country's flag is shown. The bottom right corner shows the name of the country and there is a holiday design in the bottom left corner. There are 2 different holiday designs, for variety, on the Merry Christmas posters.
A page listing all the countries in alphabetical order is provided, along with a decorative cover page to help you keep the materials organized.
Another page lists 6 ideas for how you can use the posters to extend your students learning. Suggestions include a research and graphing task, researching religious and culinary customs of the countries, a mapping task, and finding out how Merry Christmas is said in the languages of the countries in this resource.
Also included in this print-and-go holiday product is a word search puzzle with answer key. The word search is in the shape of a Christmas tree and the words are the names of the countries on the posters.
