Holidays Around the WorldHey, y'all! We're gearing up for our Holidays Around the World unit and I can't wait to share with you what it's going to look like this year. We've seen all the cutesy crafty things for this unit, but this year is going to look a little different. Because I won't be with my kiddos face to face, we're taking our unit digital!
The beauty of this is that students get to complete things at their own pace and are free to explore resources online to gain that depth of knowledge we're always aiming for.
In this unit for use with Google Classroom™, students explore holidays like Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Diwali, Chinese New Year, and Christmas in various parts of the world. Each page has an informational text, a comprehension question and/or a link to more information, and space for students to write their answers.
There are also slides for students to compare and contrast different celebrations, as well as compare and contrast them to their own celebrations. This digital unit is great for second, third, or fourth grade and would be a great introductory unit for older grades as a springboard for writing a cultural research paper.
You can find out more about this unit and other units for Google Classroom in my TPT store. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more great resources coming soon.
