Christmas Around the World Part 1

7 days!

Only 7 days until Christmas Break!  So far this school year has been chock full of stress, and just plain all around busyness. So, I decided that I wanted to have fun over the next seven days and enjoy this time with my students.  I have never done Christmas Around the World, so I am really excited!  I have teamed up with my awesome classroom neighbor to alleviate some of the planning.  So Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we will be switching classes. Here is a little breakdown of our plans.

Day 1 - We will be creating our Suitcases and Travel Journal.  As well as discussing traditions in America and within our families.
Day 2 - We will be traveling to paradise! We will be learning about Hawaii.
Day 3 - Australia and Mexico
Day 4 - Italy and Israel to learn about Hanukkah
Day 5 - Chinese New Year and the Netherlands
Day 6 - Visiting the Grinch at Whoville
Day 7 - Finishing our trip with Santa at the North Pole!

On my Freebies Page, I have linked our travel journal!

I'll update you later this week with some of the fun activities we will be doing!
