Can you believe it’s almost December? Gosh, I haven’t even begun my Christmas shopping or dug out the lights or tree. I wish I could spilt myself in two to get it all done. I sure am feeling the countdown to Christmas.
While it’s busy in December, there is always time for Christmas activities, right?!
I absolutely love teaching Christmas and holidays from around the world.
Students love learning about how others celebrate in December.
I have been wanting to create my very own unit full of a variety of activities to teach students about symbols, traditions, foods, decorations, gift bringers and generally how children like them celebrate around Christmas time.
I have put together this Christmas Around the World bundle.

This huge unit would be ideal for K-2 this December as everything is all ready to go.
