Christmas Around the World

This year we are doing something different, no forced learning, but fun Christmas themed learning as we “visit” other countries and learn how they celebrate Christmas, or if they celebrate something different for the holiday season. We are doing Christmas Around the World.

As we try to fit so much learning into the school year, December is often a month of either relaxed schooling or forced schooling. As the month brings the colder weather, snow and kids want to be outside playing, or they are excited for family visits and, for the jolly one himself to visit, Santa.

This year we are doing something different, no forced learning, but fun Christmas themed learning as we “visit” other countries and learn how they celebrate Christmas, or if they celebrate something different for the holiday season. We are doing Christmas Around the World.

I have created these for use by grade kindergarten through grade 2. Use for your age group can be adjusted by added more reading and perhaps writing practice.

I have created a min book for each of the countries we’re visiting, a passport for them to add information such as the country visited flag ornaments for your children to color, cut out and add to your tree. We will be adding a paper tree to a wall for the holidays and purpose of Christmas around the World.

Canada – Germany – China – Switzerland – Sweden – Mexico – Russia – Italy – Australia – Switzerland
