This unit looks at Australia, Mexico, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Hanukkah and England. To see a longer preview, click HERE to go to my store. I love it when things serve two purposes. This unit teaches our students about what Christmas is like in other countries and in other cultures. That is the great part. The awesome part is this: I have decided to let the ornaments that the students make become the Christmas gift for their parents! I even included a gift envelope pattern in the unit. So there you go. Two weeks of reading/social studies planned AND parents present taken care of! What more could you need!!! I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Christmas, here we come!
