Christmas Around the World - England
Christmas Around the World is one of my favorite units to teach! We began our unit today with England's Christmas customs. We read a short story about how people in England celebrate Christmas. We learned that the traditions of sending Christmas cards to loved ones and singing Christmas carols both originated in England. We then created Christmas cards for our family members and sang Christmas carols. Lastly, we created a bar graph to show our favorite Christmas carols. Tomorrow, we will learn about Germany's Christmas traditions!
