Product Description

New Year’s Holiday Celebrations around the World Research and Technology Project

Your students will love this 2019 New Year’s Activity!

This resource includes a self-directed interactive (hyperdoc) document on New Year’s Holidays around the World, article links, and videos for viewing.

Students will be guided through various links, websites, and videos on world cultural celebrations of the New Year’s holiday. After exploring several digital resources, students will use the free, user-friendly Padlet website in order to create their own Padlet on New Year’s Celebrations around the World!

The student project sheet outlines what students should post in their Padlet – including the celebrations and traditions of three different countries, our country’s New Year’s holiday traditions, the history of New Year’s, and a relevant multimedia video link on a New Year’s holiday-related topic. Students are also required to feature a set number of supporting images.

The project also includes personalized learning through student choice! The students will further individualize their World Holiday Padlet by including a minimum of two posts on the topic - New Year/New Me.

High-interest suggestions and options are provided for their personal Padlet posts. Students can include personal writing about what they’ve learned over the course of a year, a personal photo collage, a video of themselves documenting their New Year’s resolutions, or a song that reflects the past year they’ve experienced.

Students will be further motivated and excited after viewing the sample Padlet project created to serve as a model! The New Year’s Holiday around the World Project Sheet is structured and easy for students to follow!

A Padlet how-to handout, tutorial video link, and a teacher’s grading rubric facilitate the easy implementation of this project!

The resources in this purchase are compatible with Google Classroom and Google Drive. Access and downloading directions are also provided for Microsoft OneDrive and Microsoft Office users.

Teach students about other world cultures and their unique New Year’s traditions with the New Year’s Holidays around the World Research and Technology Project!
