Christmas Around the World
Last week our class "traveled" the world to learn about Christmas traditions in other countries! As we traveled, we took in some of the sights, and we created a scrapbook page to remind us of all that we learned along the way. We began our trip by going to Hawaii! We read this adorable book (that just so happened to be written and illustrated by a first grader--very cool):
We thought it was pretty funny that Santa decided to vacation in Hawaii, and we decided to pretend to be Santa and write postcards back to the North Pole. Here is a fun one:
Feliz Navidad! We also visited Mexico and learned the Legend of the Poinsettia:
Buon Natale! We loved touring Italy! We learned about La Bafana and we took "photos" at some of the famous landmarks!
