Christmas Around the World

Young travelers keep a travel journal as they tour the world and research the holiday traditions of over 30 countries. The directions packet for this journey includes an eBook filled with all the necessary templates, loads of links, coloring sheets, book recommendations, and related blogs. A must-have for both classrooms and homeschoolers.

Classroom Considerations
  • If paper use is an issue, consider assigning groups a country to research, and ask them prepare a travelogue, complete with traditions, food, and crafts
  • Some of the activities assume that the child celebrates Christmas; therefore, consider expanding the final journal activities to include any holiday celebrated at home
Pros
  • Kids are asked to locate each country studied on a world map
  • The book list includes recommendations and cautions
Cons
  • Requires at least 30 sheets of paper per traveler
  • Because not all kids celebrate Christmas, consider editing the "Favorite Christmas Memory" to "Favorite Holiday Memory"
