Check out what other teachers are saying about this resource...

► These were so great to use when we came back to school in January. Our kiddos really enjoyed them because we did a huge Christmas Around the World project with them before we went on Christmas break. Thank you so much!

► I'm so excited to use this file the week I get back from Christmas Break! It will be perfect for both my second and third graders. I love the nonfiction passages and text based questions which are a huge focus in my district. The kiddos are going to love the passports, flag stamps, and traveler's journal- too cute! The vocab cards, graphic organizers, and paragraph are going to be so helpful to extend and assess their learning. Thank you so much for making my first week back to school effortless for me! Another amazing product! :)

► This was perfect for my students! It was at a level they could read and had lots of interesting facts packed in! The passport was awesome! My kids even started discussing flags and wanted to know more!

► We have really been enjoying this product in my class. I love how they must go back to the text and underline their evidence in different colors.

► Such a cute idea! This is a great way to get back into the groove of things after Christmas break. This also goes great with my Holidays around the World activities! THANKS so much for a great product!

► I loved doing this instead of Christmas traditions like everyone else. My class loved it! Excellent resource and super engaging.
