I'm looking to put together a mini-unit on Christmas around the world for my 4th graders. Would anyone be willing to share what they do for this? or any resources that you could recommend would be great!

Thanks

Last year with my third graders I did something like this. They were each assigned a country and had to create a poster with the country name in the middle and then the rest was divided into 4 boxes. I do not remember the things I had them put in each one, but they turned out great and really decorated the hallway nicely! If I come across my resources and specifics on the project I will post them, but since I changed grades most of that stuff is packed away.

Country Search

I am doing Christmas Traditions from around the world with my third graders this year. I have always done Christmas around the world, but seem to change it up every year. This year, will tomorrow, am starting with an introductory activity that will introduce the concept that there are many different ways that Christmas is celebrated around the world. It is a country search where they have to find the country names that go with the tradition in a search activity. Basically, I have all the answers and each student can get one answer from everybody in the classroom. So, since I can give one to each student, it creates a ripple effect with the information. Does that make sense? I have a cold and it's late! I will attach my search and directions...I typed them up today since I am sharing with my grade level. Hope this helps. Let me know if I need to clarify since I am sharing with others anyway!

Here is the student page-

And finally, here is the direction page...this is the one that I hope makes sense.

I am also doing a tradition booklet, I can share that too if you are interested.
