Holidays Around the World
Studying celebrations around the world is always fun in kindergarten and first grade. It is so neat to explore different cultures and beliefs in various countries. In my Holidays Around the World unit of study, students have fun learning and completing activities and crafts for each represented holiday.
I love the idea of creating a book ahead of time for each student to keep their writing responses nice and neat throughout the unit. You don’t have to learn about all of the countries, just pick what works best for your class.
We also create a suitcase to hold all of their crafts along the way.
For each country, you will find a PowerPoint presentation with REAL images!
We use PowerPoints to learn all about the different holiday celebrations.
These chit chat messages and other writing response activities are included. Complete these with your class to solidify their learning. When you have these bound into books, they make great presentations for parents! I know some schools have what is called a “showcase” or something similar. Parents come in and check out the fun learning that is taking place. This could be an excellent resource to have for students to show off.
You can also create anchor charts. Once again, these make a great display for your classroom!
The crafts turn out so adorable! Look at this nutcracker!
Have so much fun teaching about different celebrations around the world with this unit:
** I will be adding even more countries next year! If you purchase the unit now, you will get the new countries at no additional charge.
