Whether your students celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Las Posadas, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, (or all of them!), they are always excited to learn about other countries and their holiday celebrations too! In this post, you'll find tons of creative ideas and resources for an awesome and engaging unit on Christmas Around the World!
My students have always loved learning about the holiday traditions and beliefs of other cultures! This topic is filled with opportunities to ALSO teach about geography too! Plus, it's always great to expand your students' horizons as they learn about other countries. They will become more culturally aware and the world becomes a smaller, friendlier place for them when they can relate to, and empathize with, other world citizens.
