Yes, I am one of those adults who just never outgrew the magic of the Christmas season. (I know, we really annoy the bah-humbuggers out there, don't we?!) And so, it has been my utmost pleasure to spend these past few weeks working with two fabulous fellow bloggy-packet creators from Multicultural Kid Blogs (Judith of Little Bilingues and Monica of Mommy Maestra), creating a "Celebrate Christmas Around the World" packet!
Just released today, "Celebrate Christmas Around the World" introduces the Christmas traditions and celebrations of six countries:
Brazil, France, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and Sweden
For each country, you will find:
♦ a cover page
The cover page features the country's flag and a Christmas greeting in the language of the country.
♦ a page of country facts
This page includes the country's official name and common name, its location circled on a world map, capital city, location, population, official language(s), and an interesting fact.
♦ 2 pages on Christmas celebrations
These two pages share the important and traditional celebrations of the country, and include cute graphics for students to color.
♦ a Christmas activity
The activities range from a word search to a DIY board game!
♦ a special holiday recipe
Make and taste a traditional holiday recipe from each country.
After completing the packet, students will have the opportunity to show what they have learned by answering 12 comprehension questions, 2 for each country.
We truly hope you and your students enjoy this peek into Christmas celebrations around the world! On behalf of all of us at Multicultural Kid Blogs, we wish you a wonderful and multicultural Christmas season!
