    Holidays Around the World
    By msharkey

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Each year I do this unit for the month of December. Each day or 2 we visit a different country and do a project. I intro with a book and I've made a power point that intros the holiday/country we will be focusing on. After completing the activity, I ask them questions about what they have learned and then, stamp their passport. (I have a template, if you'
    d like) - can't attach here but if you give me your email, I'd be more than happy to send.
    Mexico- God's eyes and paper poinsettas (Legend of the Poinsetta)
    Israel- (hannaka) - driedel game and edilble menorahs(various books)
    Italy - pannetone bread and brooms (The Legend of La Befana)
    England - paper stockings and greeting cards ( Twas the Night Before Christmas)
    Africa/America - Kwanzaa - mkeka mats and kinara game (various books)
    Germany - Sugar Cone Christmas trees - decorating gingerbread cookies (The Gingerbread Man - The Nutcracker Ballet - O Christmas tree)
    France - Babar's Christmas - Bushe Noel
    Sweden - St Lucia Crowns
    USA - Rudolph Cookies ( Rudolph the red nosed reindeer - I'll be trying Polar Express this year as well)

    I'd love to add other countries, if anyone has any other crafts to go along with the countries.

    This site is absolutely amazing. You are all so creative!! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas.
