Holidays Around the World
First grade students got their tickets and boarded their class airplanes to learn about holidays around the world. As they landed in each country, they explored the landmarks, money, animals, food and Christmas traditions. The students visited England, Australia, Mexico, Israel, Sweden, Greece and Germany. They headed to the beach in Australia where Christmas falls in the summertime. In Mexico, they learned that poinsettias are the Christmas flower. They also learned that Jewish people around the world celebrate Hanukkah. Our world travelers are ready to celebrate Christmas in America!
