    Christmas Around the World
    By Rosie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I do a Christmas Around the World Unit. I teach in a Catholic school so many of the activities are geared toward the religious celebration of the holidays. We read books about Christmas in other countries
    Tree of Cranes by Allen Say (Japan)We have a woman come in to teach us how to do origami.
    The Legend of Old Befana (Italy)
    The Legend of the Poinsetta (Mexico)
    The Night of Las Pasadas (Mexico)
    (all three by Tomie DePaola)
    The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (USA) - Robinson

    My class mothers buy and stuff a pinata and we hang it in the gym and the children whack it with a stick. We read about the legend of the candy cane and then I would have the children write an acrostic poem on the name Jesus using a candy cane as the J.

    I don't know if any of these ideas are helpful to you, I know that most of these ideas are geared toward Catholic schools.
